MADRAS, Ore. – A semi-truck carrying apples lost control and rolled on an ice-covered Highway 97 near Madras early Sunday morning, police said.

At 6 a.m., the driver lost control while traveling downhill and entering a curve near the town of Shaniko.

The truck crossed the center line, went off the west side of the road and rolled onto its top, spilling apples across the embankment, according to Lt. Gregg Hastings with Oregon State Police.

The driver got out of the truck with minor injuries. He was taken to a hospital in Madras.
