An unloaded logging truck owned by Sierra Pacific Industries tumbled off Main Street Chester into the North Fork of the Feather River Wednesday, leaving the driver with minor injuries and creating a traffic headache as law enforcement pulled the truck from the runoff-swollen river.

According to details provided by the Susanville office of the California Highway Patrol, at 8:30a.m., the driver of the logging truck, identified as 44-year-old Redding resident Andrew Abramenko, was driving a blue 2016 Peterbilt eastbound on Chester’s Main Street, east of Willow Way.

“Abramenko was driving at approximately 49mph in a 30mph zone,” explains CHP Public Information Officer Bruce Thuelchassaigne, “and allowed the Peterbilt to leave the roadway to the south. The truck crashed into the North Fork of the Feather River, which caused a minor fluid spill.”

Abramenko was transported to Seneca Hospital for minor injuries. The cause of the crash is currently under investigation.
