BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- A fully loaded log truck tipped over Thursday morning at the intersection of Empire Avenue and Third Street in northeast Bend, causing no injuries but blocking the busy intersection, police said.

Police responded shortly before 10 a.m. to the rollover crash, Lt. Bob Jones said. He said it was caused by a blown tire.

No injuries were reported, but Jones said the crash and cleanup closed Empire Avenue at the location until late morning. Motorists were urged to avoid the area if possible.

  1. What irony, the logging rolls over because of a blown tire right in front of a tire store. Don’t know if that was stunt to promote 5 Point, what do you say?

      1. A lot of variables. First a extra heavy load w/tag axles required are extremely top heavy, second speed rounding a 90% curve, plus possible braking in the curve, and the flat. All could have contributed to the roll over.
