In this file photo, a windmill is seen with Lowell Mountain in the background in Lowell. Green Mountain Power is building an industrial sized wind project on the mountain.

A tractor-trailer carrying wind turbine equipment for the Kingdom Community Wind project in Lowell has tipped over on Interstate 91.

The accident happened Thursday north of Orleans. State police say I-91 was closed for the night so the truck and equipment could be removed.

Green Mountain Power Spokeswoman Dorothy Schnure says the tractor-trailer was traveling through an area being paved when its tires went into the soft shoulder. She says there were no injuries and speed was not a factor.

Schnure says the trailer was being moved from Island Pond to Kingdom Community Wind with a law enforcement escort, as required by its permit.
