Speeding semi-truck driver cited in crash, Highway 58 closed for hours
by Cheryl McDermott

CRESCENT LAKE, Ore. -- A semi-truck and trailer driver from California was cited for careless driving after he lost control on Highway 58 near Crescent Lake Sunday night, crashed into a snow bank, jack-knifed, overturned, then slid down the highway before it stopped, blocking all lanes of traffic for near six hours.

 
The driver of this semi-truck and trailer was cited when he allegedly was traveling too fast for road conditions and crashed, blocking Highway 58 near Crescent Lake, Oregon for six hours - OSP photo 

Oregon State Police (OSP) Trooper Joe Smith said the non-injury crash occurred about 8 p.m., March 2, when Salvador Rivera, 34, was traveling westbound, down an icy hill and approaching a curve at an “excessive” rate of speed for the conditions.

Rivera was cited for careless driving, a news release stated.

“The driver was wearing safety restraints, and there was no oncoming traffic – otherwise this could have been more serious than it was,” Trooper Smith said.

The highway was reopened about six hours later, OSP said.
