The good news was that when this fully loaded dump truck lost its brakes, at 3 pm on October 11th, as it approached S.E. 82nd on Otty Road, just south of Johnson Creek Blvd., driver David Knight, age 53, from Mulino, avoided crashing into traffic stopped ahead on 82nd by yanking the wheel to the right and overturning his truck in the parking lot of a Seven Eleven store.

The bad news was that the truck overturned on, and squashed, an empty 1988 Toyota Camry, which belonged to the store manager, and then spilled dirt all over the parking lot and intersection.

Knight was not seriously hurt, and northbound 82nd reopened by 5:30 pm.
