Truck Driver Injured After Hitting Fallen Trees in Oregon


Oregon State Police are warning drivers to be on the lookout for fallen trees in the roadways, following an overnight crash that injured a truck driver.

At approximately 2:16 a.m., Monti Manary, 65, was driving along Highway 26, east of the Sunset Rest Area, when his truck slammed into trees that had fallen onto the roadway.

Manary was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Oregon State Police, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Banks Fire Department and ODOT worked to clear the scene.

“With our recent snow, wet and windy conditions, OSP and ODOT remind travelers to be alert for limbs and fallen or leaning trees when traveling through forested areas. Motorists are also encouraged to report potential hazardous roadway debris and conditions,” the Oregon State Police reported.
