COLTON, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon State Police say a log truck that rolled, dumping its logs across Oregon Highway 211 north of Colton, led to a nearly three-hour closure of the road.

No one was injured Monday.

Trooper Scott McLeod says a truck pulling a loaded log trailer was southbound negotiating a left curve when the trailer went off the road onto a soft shoulder and rolled.

The highway reopened about 3:30 p.m. Monday.

The driver, 55-year-old Errol Knobf of Molalla, was cited for failure to maintain a lane of travel.

Colton is southeast of Portland.
