Lincolnville — Stanley Bajor of Bernard is unhurt after the silver Toyota Tacoma he was driving rolled over on Slab City Road just before noon Monday, Jan. 27.

Maine State Police Lieut. Aaron Hayden said Bajor lost control in the slush, overcorrected, and went off the road, flipping the truck. Initially, he was unable to open his door because of the snow on the other side, said Lincolnville Fire Chief Ben Hazen. Within 10 minutes, Frank Rolerson, an employee of Viking Lumber, happened by and dug him out, Hazen said.

Northeast Mobile Health Services and the Maine State Police also responded to the scene. Bajor refused to be transported to the hospital.

Who's the driver? Usually you report every nonessential personal detail. You're slipping.
