Photo: log truck vs train

An unloaded log truck went off Highway 14 near Dog Mountain just before 1 p.m. yesterday afternoon. According to a press release from the Washington State Patrol, the driver, 39-year-old Rasul Tedorov of Vancouver, was adjusting his GPS system and rand off the south side of of ther road and collided with the rock retaining wall. The truck traveled over the top of the retaining wall, dropping approximately 10 feet down onto the passenger side, coming to rest on the railroad tracks. The driver, still inside the cab, was attempting to locate his cell phone when the truck was struck by an eastbound Burlington Northern freight train. The only cargo on the train was lumber and the Department of Ecology responded for ruptured fuel tanks on the semi. The driver was not injured, and was charged with negligent driving in the second degree.  Photo below is from the Washington State Patrol.02 08 13 log truck vs train SR 14 near Dog Mountain

    This is not a log truck. It is a semi pulling a reefer trailer.
