A log truck driver was injured Thursday morning when his rig overturned near Rotschy Road.

Diesel spilled but the seepage was contained and did not enter Cedar Creek, said Chief Ben Peeler with Fire District 13.

Peeler said the log truck driver was taken to Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. No other vehicles were involved in the accident, and the driver’s name was not available.

Clark County sheriff’s deputies are investigating, Peeler added.
