Overturned Log Truck Closes Highway

A big mess this afternoon after a log truck overturned on a Beaufort County highway.

Fortunately no one was hurt in the 12:15 p.m. crash on Slatestone Road, east of Washington. The wreck happened near the intersection with Terrapin Track Road.

The Highway Patrol says no other vehicles were involved in the accident. The log truck, from Alligood Brothers Logging, was turning off a dirt road onto the state highway when it appears its back wheels went into a ditch, causing it to overturn.

The fully-loaded log truck had to be emptied before wreckers could flip it back on its wheels.
