(Port Angeles) -- It took crews hours to clear debris from a flipped lumber truck west of Port Angeles.

The truck turned over about ten yesterday morning on a steep corner of Highway 101 near the Elwha River.

The accident scattered lumber across the highway. Crews were not able to fully reopen the highway until about nine hours later.

The truck driver from Tacoma was injured and taken to Olympic Medical Center. He was cited for driving too fast for the 25 mile per hour corner.
