Trucker Cited In I-5 Rollover Crash

By Jim McCoy Tue 11th June NewscrashI-5
A commercial truck driver was cited by Oregon State Police following Monday evening's rollover crash on Interstate 5 south of Ashland that closed the northbound lanes about three hours. At approximately 7:29 p.m., a 2005 Freightliner truck pulling a semi-trailer driven by 28-year old Paul Gurinder of Rancho Cordova, California, was northbound near milepost 7 when Gurinder lost control trying to negotiate a curve while traveling too fast. The truck and trailer overturned, colliding with a concrete barrier before coming to rest in the middle of the northbound lanes. Gurinder received possible serious, non-life threatening injuries and was transported by ambulance to Providence Medford Medical Center. He was cited by OSP for Reckless Driving. The freeway lanes were re-opened about 3 hours later after removal of the wrecked vehicles and cleanup of a diesel spill and pallets of energy drinks.
