BRUNSWICK — The driver of a refrigerated box truck carrying 60-70 crates of live lobster has non-life threatening injuries after the truck he was driving rolled over on the shoulder of Route 1 north at approximately 11:30 a.m. Aug. 22.
According to police, Jose Albino Horrach, 39, of South Portland, who was driving a vehicle registered to Cozy Harbor Seafood Inc. of Portland, was transported to Midcoast Hospital for treatment.
