West Linn man unharmed after trailer of produce spills
The driver of a pickup was uninjured after his vehicle and trailer loaded with produce rolled over Friday morning along Highway 213 near Beavercreek Road in the Oregon City area.
According to Oregon State Police Trooper Scott Kinch, at approximately 10:42 a.m., a 1997 Ford Explorer sport utility vehicle driven by Byron Brady, 61, from West Linn, was northbound on Highway 213 near milepost 2 when the trailer began to fishtail causing Brady to lose control.
The Ford and trailer overturned in the right-hand northbound lane and stopped on the shoulder. The trailer's load of produce spilled onto the highway and shoulder area.
Brady was not injured, but he was cited by OSP for failure to drive within a lane.
OSP was assisted at the scene by Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Clackamas Fire District #1 and Oregon Department of Transportation.
The right northbound lane was closed about two hours to clean up the scene.
