Truck drives off Northeast 134th Street

By Craig Brown, Columbian Metro Editor



A commercial food service truck went off the road on Northeast 134th Street during this morning’s rush hour. No injuries were reported.

The accident occurred on the overpass above Interstate 205, near the junction of Interstates 5 and 205 in the Salmon Creek area, according to Gregg Herrington, who saw and photographed the truck off the road. Herrington is a former Columbian reporter and editor who now works for Battle Ground Public Schools.

The State Patrol was investigating the cause. Herrington said he was told the driver was eastbound when a front tire caught a curb, causing the truck to leave the road.

It stayed upright as it entered the ditch.

The truck bore the logo of Sysco, a large commercial food distributor.

It was foggy in the Salmon Creek neighborhood this morning, but it’s not known if that was a factor.
