A log truck overturned on Claybank road in West Jefferson last Thursday.

The Ashe Post and Times reports the driver, Jim Grubb from Todd, was hauling a load of logs when he lost control of his truck, skidded across the road, overturned and came to a stop upside down on the roadside.

According to the report, the truck took out a light pole and crashed into an unoccupied Chevy SUV.

Grubb was able to get out of the overturned truck and was responsive when Ashe County Rescue Squad arrived at the scene.

Grubb was transported to the Ashe Memorial Hospital, and was in stable condition as of last Friday.
