Excavator rolls over along Interstate 205

By Craig Brown, Columbian Metro Editor



An excavator working along Interstate 205 rolled over around 5 p.m. Monday, but there were no injuries.

According to emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian, several people reported the accident. The driver was safe, and there was no fire, so emergency vehicles were not responding.

The incident occurred near Milepost 36, which is the Northeast 134th Street exit. Crews are in the area overhauling after a series of grass fires earlier Monday afternoon, but it was unknown if the two were related.
