Oregon State Police is continuing the investigation into Monday morning’s injury log truck crash that closed Highway 82 at Minam Canyon west of Wallowa for more than four hours.

At approximately 11:40 a.m., a loaded log truck driven by Nicholas Perkins, 23, of Pendleton, was westbound on Highway 82 near milepost 31 entering a sharp curve. The log truck and trailer was traveling too fast, according to the OSP, and rolled onto its side, damaging more than 100 feet of guardrail. The logs spilled onto the shoulder and some went down an embankment.

Perkins was transported by Elgin Ambulance to Grande Ronde Hospital in La Grande with non-life threatening injuries.

OSP Senior Trooper Jed Stone is the lead investigator. No citations have been issued at this time.

OSP was also assisted at the scene by Wallowa Rural Fire Protection District and ODOT. The highway was reopened about 4 p.m.
