[UPDATE 1:58 p.m. Road Open] Semi Stuck on Thomas Road off of Salmon Creek
A semi is stuck on the steep section of Thomas Road off of Salmon Creek Road above the curving bridge known as Grunt Hill. Residents tell me the truck and trailer became jammed in the tight turns a little after 11 a.m. and traffic is backing up.
UPDATE 12 noon: According to residents on scene, a 4-Wheel drive allows access around the stuck semi. Photos from Alyssa Goodsell below show the scene.
UPDATE 1:58 p.m.: A resident says they got through.
UPDATE 2:06 p.m.: Matt Stark, from the Salmon Creek Fire Department, reports that local heavy equipment operator Liberty Bell, “raced back” from Eureka to help get the truck out of the road. Speaking as a resident, “Thank you, Bea!”
