Could this be referring to the logging truck that lost its load out on Hwy 16? It happened early yesterday morning, and the highway was mostly cleared by mid-morning. I expect that they closed the highway in the evening to pick up the rest of the logs that were laying about in the ditch. Scary accident!!
