Oregon State Police responded to a call around 11 a.m. Tuesday that a log truck travelling east bound on Highway 126 had overturned, sending logs into the road and the yard of a house. Investigators say the driver was not injured.
EPUD was also on scene to restore a power line that was hit. Residents say they were without power for a while but were told it would only take a couple hours to restore.
Investigators say they don’t believe the rain to be a factor.
“At this point, I don’t believe weather to be a factor. We’re looking at possibly a mechanical error or quite possibly speed. We’re not quite sure at this point,” said Senior Trooper Rick Hamilton with Oregon State Police.
OSP says all people travelling to and from the coast in the rain should drive slow.
