(Joyce) – A spilled excavator blocked Highway 112 for about six hours yesterday afternoon.
The State Patrol says a truck pulling a lowboy trailer with the excavator on board left the road about 24 miles west of Port Angeles. The rig rolled after heading into the ditch, dumping the excavator.
The road was periodically shut down while crews worked to upright the truck and excavator.
58-year-old Roger Hopie was driving the truck. He was not injured in the accident.
