At approximately 6:30am, an empty off-highway logging truck was travelling along a flat stretch of road when the right front tire caught the low side edge of the road, forcing the truck into the ditch.
The truck came to rest on its right side. Fortunately, the driver was not injured. The truck received minor damage.
Whether loaded or empty, drivers need to be aware of road conditions, including watching for leans and soft shoulders.
