CHURCH HILL — A tractor trailer rolled over on Route 301 north near the Bay County Welcome Center early on June 17.

Maryland State Police said the crash occurred just south of the welcome center; the tractor trailer, loaded with 70,000 pounds of freight, left the road, rolled and came to rest in the median.

Police said they believe the driver, Joseph Mortimer of Florida, fell asleep at the wheel. He was alone in the vehicle. Police said Mortimer was not injured.

A detour was in place for several hours while emergency crews worked to clear the scene.

No charges have been filed. The investigation is continuing.
