      Log truck overturns south of Astoria

      ASTORIA, Ore. - An Astoria truck driver was injured when the log truck he was driving overturned and spilled logs onto Highway 105 Sunday morning.


      One of the logs hit a car on the highway. The driver was not hurt.


      State police said William Fletcher was driving northbound on Highway 105 at around 11:20 a.m. when the log load shifted and he lost control of the truck near Wireless road.
