An Oregon Department of Transportation worker outdrove death Monday after his truck barely missed being crushed by a falling tree on Interstate 5.
Dramatic dashcam footage shows the ODOT vehicle. Noble, an agency spokesperson said the incident responder was driving north on I-5 near Wolf Creek Pass in Josephine County around 2 p.m. when the towering evergreen, which was later measured to have a 2.5-foot diameter trunk, slammed to earth, blocking all of the northbound lanes and one southbound lane.
