Vehicle crash off Logsden Road well east of Siletz

7:30am  Report of a vehicle over the side of a hill on Logsden Road, well east of Siletz.  Toledo, Siletz and Newport Fire-Rescue are headed to the scene.  Reports say the vehicle rolled considerably downhill from the road.

7:53am  Fire-Rescue personnel have found the wreck.  They say the vehicle left the road and rolled downhill into the river right across from the fish hatchery.
