OROVILLE, CA (August 19, 2022) — Two people were harmed following a logging truck crash on Highway 70 early Monday morning, August 15.

The accident took place around 2:40 a.m. near the Pulga maintenance station, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

For reasons still unknown, the logging truck crashed over the edge of the highway. After that, it came to a rest at about 150 feet below the road.

A rescue team was dispatched to the scene. Two people were discovered with moderate injuries. As a result, medical personnel sent the two patients to the hospital for treatment.

Reports indicated that a small amount of fuel leakage was found from the wreckage. However, none of it reached the Feather River, which could have caused damage to the natural habitat in the particular area of the canyon.

The cause of the crash and details leading up to it remain unavailable at this time as investigations continue.

Trucks, buses, and other large vehicles are harder to maneuver and take a longer time to move. Avoid distractions, know your blind spots, and keep a safe braking distance. Furthermore, buckle up for safety, always observe the speed limit, and be aware of dangerous tailgaters. Equally important, keep your equipment properly maintained to reduce the chance of breakdowns.
