8:05pm A truck traveling westbound this evening on Yaquina Bay Road went off the pavement near Benson Road – the truck stopping on an over-hang on the river. The truck is dangling precariously with the driver trapped inside the cab.
8:12pm Firefighters are attaching chains to stabilize the truck and then figure out how to pull it back onto the pavement. The driver is not injured, but likely plenty nervous.
9:06pm Driver freed from his overhanging truck. He’s okay and back on solid ground.
