Josh Bresett, Heather Bresett Injured in Logging Truck Accident on Route 1A in Aroostook County, ME

Aroostook County, ME — Two people were hospitalized following an accident with a logging truck in Aroostook County, Maine, on Monday, February 16, 2015. The accident happened on Route 1A.

Reports say that a logging truck drove over the front half a car, with three people inside at the time. The victims have been identified as Josh and Heather Bresset. Both sustained serious injuries and were taken to a local hospital after emergency workers freed them from the wreckage.

Also inside the vehicle was their two-year old son. He was not injured.

The driver of the logging truck wasn’t injured. The truck is owned by a company based out of Nova Scotia. Police are continuing to investigate.

Scene of the Accident


Reports say that blinding snow drifts may have played a role in this accident. That’s very possible. The northeast has been getting some crazy weather lately. But as a defense in an accident like this, that doesn’t hold up too well. The weather is going to be what it’s going to be, and a driver has a responsibility to either adapt to it, or stay off the road. If this truck driver couldn’t see what was in front of him, he shouldn’t have been driving. Fortunately, this accident wasn’t nearly as bad as it could have been. Still, the truck driver has some pretty hard questions to answer right now.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
