Oregon State Police (OSP) is continuing the investigation into the cause of Tuesday morning's serious injury traffic crash involving a concrete mixer truck on Highway 26 northwest of Prineville.
On October 15, 2013 at approximately 9:00 a.m., a concrete mixer truck driven by DWAIN STORM, age 61, from Prineville, was westbound on Highway 26 near milepost 18 when it travelled off the north side of the highway. The truck struck a dirt embankment and rolled onto its side until it came to rest blocking the highway, spilling cement on the road.
STORM was transported by Crook County Fire & Rescue ambulance to Pioneer Memorial Hospital and then taken by air ambulance to St. Charles Medical Center in Bend for treatment of serious injury. The vehicle is registered to Prineville Sand and Gravel.
OSP was assisted at the scene by Crook County Fire & Rescue and ODOT. The highway was closed about four hours.
Senior Trooper James Reeher is the lead investigator.
