SPRINGFIELD, Ore. – A semi headed west on Highway 126 lost some of its load Monday morning.

The lumber truck slowed down for a disabled vehicle between the 42nd Street and Mohawk exits at about 6:45 a.m.

The load shifted forward, damaging the cab and crushing the exhaust pipes. Some of the load spread onto the highway. The tie downs that secured the load broke.

No other cars were damaged, and the driver was all right.

The semi was unloaded, and the load was hauled off by a different semi. The damaged semi was towed.

For several hours afterward, the highway was down to one westbound lane.
