Rollover Blocks Traffic On Highway 140

Semi truck rolls on Highway 140, sending the driver to the hospital and blocking traffic for two hours.

The crash happened near mile marker 24 around 5 p.m. on Wednesday. An Oregon State Police trooper says the truck driver somehow lost control and rolled the truck on to its side.

It’s unknown what exactly caused the crash. That driver was taken to an area hospital with unknown injuries. The truck blocked both lanes of the highway for about two hours, and backed up traffic for more than a quarter-mile. Tow trucks finally cleared a lane around 7 p.m.
