Driver slightly injured, after his tractor-trailer loaded with apples crashes on Icy Highway 97 near Madras in Wasco County.
A semi-truck carrying apples lost control and rolled on an ice-covered Highway 97 near Madras early Sunday morning, police said.
At 6 a.m., the driver lost control while traveling downhill and entering a curve near the town of Shaniko. The truck crossed the center line, went off the west side of the road and rolled onto its top, spilling apples across the embankment, according to the Oregon State Police.
The driver got out of the truck with minor injuries. He was taken to a hospital in Madras.
