(GASTON, Ore.) - Oregon State Police (OSP) is completing the investigation into an overturned commercial truck and trailer that dumped a load of household trash onto Highway 47 south of the Washington / Yamhill County line. The crash closed the highway and the involved driver was treated and released for minor injuries.
According to OSP Lieutenant Eric Davenport, on October 4, 2010 at approximately 7:15 a.m. a 2001 Mack truck pulling a large trailer loaded with household trash was driven by Charles L. Ryder, age 42, from Aloha, southbound on Highway 47 near milepost 30. Preliminary investigation indicates the trailer's load shifted causing the driver to lose control. The truck and trailer rolled onto its side after striking a PGE pole, resulting in complete highway blockage.
Ryder, who was driving for Walsh Trucking, was transported by ambulance to Willamette Valley Medical Center with minor injuries. He was treated and released.
OSP was assisted at the scene by Yamhill County Sheriff's Office, Gaston Fire Department, PGE and ODOT.
