ROCKLAND, Maine (WABI) - The trial of a Tennessee truck driver accused of causing a deadly crash two years ago continued in Rockland Friday.

Police say 55-year-old Randall Weddle was driving drunk when his truck hauling lumber started a crash involving several cars.

In court Friday, the jury heard more testimony from officials who were on scene the day of the accident.

They also went over the condition Weddle's truck was in after the crash.

He's charged with manslaughter and aggravated driving under the influence.

The State plans to wrap up its case Monday.
