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.
No one, including the driver, was hurt, Noble said, even as one falling limb left a spider web of fractured glass on the vehicle’s windshield.
