Trailer Flips on Highway near Roseburg

ROSEBURG, Ore. – A crash involving a car and a truck blocked one lane of Interstate 5 for several hours Wednesday.

Oregon State Police say around 12:10 p.m. a SUV pulling a trailer was passing a truck, when the trailer began to fishtail.

The truck driver noticed that the trailer was beginning to fishtail and began to move towards the right shoulder; that’s when the trailer struck the side of the truck.

The trailer flipped on its side before coming to a rest in the right southbound lane. One lane was blocked for several hours, causing a significant back up.

The driver of the SUV, Jennifer Geho, 53, of Roseburg was transported to the Mercy Medical Center with minor injuries. The truck driver was not injured. Both were wearing seat belts.

OSP later cited Geho for failing to drive within a lane.
