ASOTIN – Two people escaped serious injury in a logging truck accident about 1 mile south of Asotin.

Emergency crews from Asotin County Fire District #1, Asotin Fire, and Lewiston Ambulance all responded just after 9:00 a.m. on Saturday to a truck rollover accident on Highway 129.

The highway was blocked in both directions as logs were spilled onto the road and over the steep embankment. Traffic was diverted onto a private road around the scene while crews were trying to move the truck and logs.

The driver and passenger refused medical care on the scene.
