The CHP lays fault with the driver in a logging truck crash on Oregon Mountain Monday. A little after One O’clock 63-year-old Thomas Killingsworth was heading east on Highway 299 downhill about a mile and a half from Weaverville hauling a full load of logs with his 2017 Peterbilt. The CHP says he was talking on his cell phone, not wearing a seatbelt and going too fast when he lost control on a sharp right-hand curve. The tractor-trailer tipped over onto its left side and all of the logs hit the road, blocking both westbound lanes of the highway. The truck itself kept sliding and hit the guardrail, which intruded into the cab. Killingsworth suffered a severe laceration to his left arm and other left side injuries. He was flown to Mercy Medical Center in Redding. The highway was under traffic control for about four hours as the truck, trailer and logs were moved out of the road. Trinity River Lumber Company will be picking up their logs later.
