PORTLAND — Icy conditions on Northwest Logie Trail Road have caused a closure near Skyline Boulevard that will last through the weekend. A utility truck went off the road, crashed into a wooded area and caught fire on Thursday just before noon.
The driver jumped out of the flaming truck and escaped injury just moments before it slid into a ravine.
There have been several accidents on the steep, windy road that runs between Highway 30 and Skyline. The best detour is Cornelius Pass.
Multnomah County closed the road so crews could get their sanding truck up there. Logie Trail is closed until at least Monday morning.
