Update at 5 p.m. There was no log truck crash east of Newport near Eddyville on Highway 20, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.
Due to inaccurate information from ODOT, the Gazette-Times previously reported a log truck crash on Highway 20 near Eddyville. ODOT officials confirmed Thursday afternoon that there was no log truck crash near Eddyville. The initial report that listed Eddyville as a location was intended as an update for the crash that occurred in Sweet Home, ODOT officials said.
"There was only one crash and it was near Sweet Home," said Angela Beers-Seydel, public information officer for ODOT. "That (initial report listing Eddyville) was a mistake."
