GUILDHALL — A milk truck overturned on Friday afternoon, spilling milk onto the ground, near the intersection of Route 2 and VT 102.

The tractor-trailer, driven by Mark Beynon of Lunenburg, was headed west after crossing the New Hampshire state line and entering Vermont.

Beynon reported to Essex County Sheriff Trevor Colby that there was a vehicle in front of his that was approaching the Route 2 intersection from VT 102. He was attempting to avoid the vehicle when his vehicle overturned, Beynon explained to the sheriff.

Cynthia Gregoire of Williamstown, Vt., was driving the other vehicle,

The two vehicles did not collide and no contact was made.

Beynon was wearing his seatbelt. He was treated and released from Weeks Medical Center in Lancaster. The accident remains under investigation.

McDermotts, Inc., of Enosburg Falls, Vt., owns the milk truck. A spokesman at the company said he believed the tractor-trailer is a total wreck, but that that is a determination that the company's insurance will make.

In addition to Sheriff Colby, the Lancaster Fire Department and Ambulance responded to the accident site.
