ASTORIA, Ore. – An Astoria truck driver was injured when the log truck he was driving overturned and spilled logs onto Highway 105 Sunday morning.

One of the logs hit a car on the highway. The driver was not hurt.

State police said William Fletcher was driving northbound on Highway 105 at around 11:20 a.m. when the log load shifted and he lost control of the truck near Wireless road.

Police said they believe speed and a wet road were also factors in the crash.

Fletcher was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

The highway was closed for about three hours.
