Logging Truck Flips

By  | 

An accident on State Route 892 left a huge mess Thursday afternoon.

The Wood County Sheriff's Office responded to the accident just before 1:00.

Sergeant Robert Sims says Ervin Tacket of Highland Woodfiber LLC was coming off the U.S. 50 eastbound ramp and turned left onto State Route 892 southbound when the tractor trailer tipped over, causing the logs to fall from the truck.

Fortunately, Tacket was not hurt.

Traffic was at a stand still while members of the West Virginia Department of Transportation and Washington Bottom Volunteer Fire Department cleared logs off the road.

The accident is still under investigation.
