Logging Truck Accident
On 6/21/21 at approximately 10:00 am, Clearwater County Sheriff Deputies responded to mile marker 1 on the 247 Road near Headquarters for a non-injury, rollover accident involving a logging truck. Sarah K. Ross (20) of Cottonwood, was driving on the 247 Road towards Headquarters when her load shifted. The logging truck began tipping toward the passenger side until the loaded logs broke free, causing the truck to rollover onto its side. The truck slid approximately 50 feet before coming to a stop at the top of a 100 foot embankment. Ross was able to get out of the truck on her own, uninjured. She said she was wearing her seat belt. The logging truck suffered catastrophic damage and will most likely be a total loss.
