BARNET, Vt. (WCAX) - A tractor-trailer driver says he lost control on Interstate 91 in Barnet after he saw a deer.

Lumber spilled all over the roadway during the crash Monday at about 5 p.m.

Police say the driver tried to avoid the deer, lost control, rode along 100 feet of guardrail and rolled back into the passing lane, dumping the lumber.

The truck was totaled, but the driver wasn’t hurt.

The crash is still under investigation, so no word yet on whether any charges will be filed.
