No injuries despite heavy damage to both vehicles…
Highway 395 three miles north of Colville was closed on Wednesday night after a log truck collided with a tractor hauling a hay baler. No injuries occurred and the accident happened near milepost 234. The accident happened at roughly 10:11 p.m.
Photos of the incident show heavy damage to the front of the log truck and heavy damage to the baler and tractor.
The road was blocked fully as authorities dealt with the accident. Community members also helped with the removal of farm equipment off the highway.
Please be aware of farm equipment on area roadways during busy haying seasons and overall. We live in a rural community and tractors can’t go as fast as a normal car.
