Fort Smith truck driver killed in accident last week near Odell Lake, Oregon



A local truck driver died in a single-vehicle crash Wednesday in a single-vehicle Highway 58 west of Odell Lake, Oregon according to Oregon State Police.

The truck driver was identified as Joshua Stewart, 38, of Fort Smith.

Police and emergency personnel responded to the single vehicle crash near milepost 60 on the highway a little after 8 a.m., according to state police.


Investigators say the westbound Freightliner truck crossed into the eastbound lanes and overturned, sliding until it hit the guardrail on the eastbound shoulder.

Stewart was transported to a local hospital and was later pronounced dead, state police said.
