BROOKINGS, Ore. — The drivers of two logging trucks seemed miraculously unharmed following a head-on crash along Highway 101 north of Brookings, Brookings Fire & Rescue (BFR) reported.
Firefighters responded to the head-on crash between two logging trucks on Wednesday. One of the trucks was loaded with logs, while the other was unloaded. The crash happened near the entrance to Whaleshead Resort about 8 miles north of Brookings.
"Fortunately this was a minor injury accident and both drivers where able to self extricate from their vehicles," BFR said.
The agency said that both drivers were checked over by the crew of a Cal-Ore Life Flight ground ambulance crew, but they both refused transport by ambulance to the hospital.
BFR was on the scene assisting Cape Ferello Fire Department along with the Oregon State Police, Curry County Sheriff's Department, ODOT and South Coast Lumber.
"South Coast provided a self loading log truck to pick up the load of logs to facilitate getting the highway open," BFR said.
