ENFIELD — A truck driver from Canada suffered minor injuries after his box truck rolled over on an icy patch of Interstate 89 in Enfield early Friday morning, according to authorities.

New Hampshire State Police were called to the scene around 12:45 a.m. after the truck went off the southbound side of the interstate, into the median, and overturned, according to a news release from state police. There they found the driver, 50-year-old Roy El Chidiac of Saint-Laurent, Quebec, pinned under the dashboard of the truck.

Crews from the Lebanon Fire Department rescued El Chidiac from the cab and transported him to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, where he was treated for minor injuries, according to police.

The truck had been carrying pallets of bread, which spilled over the roadway in the crash. Police closed the surrounding stretch of highway for a couple of hours while they cleaned up the scene, the release said.

Troopers are still investigating the crash. They said the roads were icy and the weather “was a mix of rain and sleet” according to the release.
