    SABATTUS, Maine (AP) — A pickup truck driver in Maine who was counting his cash hit a mailbox and rolled the truck, state police said.

    Nicholas Landry told police he’d just cashed his paycheck and was counting the money when his pickup veered onto a shoulder, clipped a mailbox and rolled over in Sabattus, police said.

    Landry, 32, of Greene, was wearing his seatbelt and walked away from the crash on Wednesday with a “slight bump on his head,” Sabattus Police Lt. Daniel Davies said in a statement.

    Davies said the incident serves as a reminder about distracted driving.

    “It does not have to be a cellphone that distracts you. It could be anything that takes your eyes off the road and takes your mind away from the operation of the vehicle,” he said.
