ROCKLAND — The building where Atlantic Baking Company is located was struck by a truck early Monday morning, Nov. 22, around 6 a.m.

The corner of the building at 351 Main St. was damaged when a tractor trailer attempted to turn onto Winter Street, but struck the building. The vehicle backed up and then left the scene, but was located a few minutes later by Rockland Police near the DuPont plant off nearby Tillson Avenue.

The 2016 Freightliner tractor with a 2017 Hyundai trailer, driven by Torrance Roberts, 48, of South Carolina, had only minor damage, according to Rockland Police Sgt. Ken Smith. There was significant damage to the building, according to Rockland.

Atlantic Baking announced on its Facebook page it would be closed Monday to get a structural inspection of the building done. The bakery said anyone with orders to pick up can pick them up at the back door.

The driver was not charged. He said he did not realize he had struck the building.

The crash was investigated by Rockland Police Officer Michael Izzi.

Later on Monday, Atlantic Baking brought some of its baked goods over to the Rockland Public Library for the library to give away free to patrons.
