On 05/19/2022, at 1945 hours, Troopers from Troop G responded to reports of a tractor trailer rolled over on the mile maker 75 entrance ramp to I-95, southbound in Auburn. The operator failed to keep the "U.S. Foods" tractor trailer in the proper lane on the entrance ramp and went off the roadway to the left, into the ditch and rolling the truck onto its side.
