Highway 101, 15 miles south of Yachats, Wednesday
A semi headed north on Highway 101, carrying a load of crab pots up the coast to Astoria, may have taken a curve a little too fast about 15 miles south of Yachats Wednesday. Photographer Ken Gagne said he talked with the driver and he appeared to be okay. It appeared that the truck, headed northbound, rounded a sharp curve, crossed over the center line and rolled up on its left side with it’s tractor wheels protruding into the southbound lane.
The driver was not injured. Oregon State police arrived and ordered two large tow trucks to right the semi.
