Logging Truck Rollover on HWY 89

A fully loaded log truck overturned on hwy 89, sliding across both lanes of traffic that only resulted in minor injuries. The Quincy California Highway Patrol said the incident occurred north of Old Haun road. 70-year-old Roger Cappello of Red Bluff was trying to make a right-hand turn when Due to Cappello’s mishandling of his fully weighed down truck at an unsafe speed for the vehicle load, and roadway conditions, he was unable to safely maintain control of the semi, causing it to travel into the opposing lanes and rollover. The log load also separated and slid across the lanes. Cappello was transported to Enloe Medical Center in Chico to treat minor injuries.
