Log truck accident blocks traffic outside Cosmopolis
Traffic was slowed and blocked outside of Cosmopolis after a log truck rolled.
A 47 year old Montesano man was driving his 2008 Kenworth with trailer north on Cosi Hill Monday, just 3 miles south of the city. When he tried to pass another vehicle, his load began to sway. When he lost control, the log truck rolled over onto its side on the corner, blocking the lane for almost 4 hours.
The driver was taken to Summit Pacific Medical Center following the accident.
Charges are pending, but the Washington State Patrol said that excess speed was the likely cause.
