WEST BATH (WGME) -- Northbound lanes on Route 1 in West Bath are back open, after a tractor trailer truck jack-knifed.

Officials say the driver lost control when his truck hydroplaned during heavy rainfall, and then hit a guard rail, before coming to a rest in the middle of the road.

We're told the driver, from Virginia, went to the hospital with minor injuries.

Crews rerouted traffic while they cleaned up fuel.
