OSP investigating Umatilla County crash

Oregon State Police are continuing the investigation into Friday morning's fatal log truck crash that resulted in the death of a 51-year old Montana man along Highway 204 near Tollgate in Umatilla County.

According to OSP Sgt. Sterling Hall, an unloaded log truck driven by Shane Cosgriff from Greycliff, Mont., was westbound on Highway 204 near milepost 18 when Cosgriff lost control negotiating a left curve. The truck and trailer traveled off the highway and rolled once before coming to rest.

Cosgriff, driving for BL Lathrop Ranch out of Lostine, was not using safety restraints and was partially ejected. He was pronounced deceased at the scene. Next of kin notifications were done.

OSP troopers from the Pendleton Area Command office are continuing the investigation. Speed is a possible contributing factor.

OSP was assisted at the scene by East Umatilla County Rural Fire Protection District, East Umatilla County Health District Medic 400, U.S. Forest Service, and ODOT. The highway was open for area traffic during the investigation.
