Rollover wrecks semi

Friday accident took out 200 feet of fencing

Oregon State Police Troopers were dispatched just before 7 a.m. on Friday when a semi ran off the road near Milepost 19 of the McKenzie Highway. According to OSP reports the vehicle drifted over the fog line onto the narrow roadside shoulder and hit the edge of the pavement, which pulled the truck onto a steep embankment. That overturned the Kenworth T680, causing it to strike an ODOT merge sign and approximately 200 ft. of adjacent property fencing - sustaining moderate damage to the passenger side. Police said the driver, Bo Wayne Panagiotopoulos, 38, from Kingman, AZ, was complaining of pain in his legs and was transported to the Riverbend Hospital for evaluation.
