A truck driver was killed yesterday morning when her lumber truck veered off U.S. Highway 101 near Garberville.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation but CHP reports a trucker driving a 2010 Kenworth semi truck hauling lumber on a flatbed trailer traveling south on U.S. Highway 101 veered off the west side of the road, over an embankment. The truck overturned and came to a rest on its roof on the east bank of the river below.
The truck was discovered at 8 a.m. yesterday by a Caltrans crew and the driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Her identity is being withheld by officials until her family can be notified.
Neither drugs nor alcohol appear to be a factor in the crash, according to CHP. Read the full collision report here
