LA GRANDE, Ore. -- A log truck operator was taken to a La Grande hospital with non-life threatening injuries after his vehicle overturned on Highway 82 west of Wallowa.

The Oregon State Police says the loaded log truck driven by 23-year-old Nicholas Perkins of Pendleton took a sharp curve too fast and rolled onto its side.

Monday's crash damaged more than 100 feet of guardrail as the logs spilled onto the shoulder of the highway and some went down an embankment.

Police say the crash closed a section of the highway for more than four hours.

No citations have been issued, but the crash remains under investigation.
