Highway blocked by overturned logging rig / February 10, 2021
A logging truck crash shut down U.S. 58 West near the old Slagle’s Motel in Buffalo Junction for several hours on Wednesday as crews worked to clear the road of logs and other debris.

The crash involved a log hauler and occurred around 5:18 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3, one half mile from Bull Road. The overturned rig spilled debris across the highway and the median, with the trailer lying on its side across both lanes of U.S. 58.

Virginia State Trooper J.C. Clark reported that the truck, owned by Keja’Eh Enterprises of Halifax, ran off the road to the right before flipping on its side after the driver lost control. No other vehicles were involved.

There was no indication from State Police on what may have caused the driver, Frank Drumright, 59 of Semora, N.C. to lose control of the rig. A photo of the crash scene taken by a passing motorist showed long skid marks on the road by the truck.

Drumright was uninjured. He was charged with failure to maintain proper control.
