On 09/28/2022, at approximately 0820 hours, Roger Cappello (70 years old, out of Red Bluff) was driving his fully loaded 2000 Peterbilt log truck s/b on SR-89, north of Old Haun Road at a stated 50 mph speed, on a right-hand curve in the roadway. Due to Cappello’s operation of his loaded log truck at an unsafe speed for the vehicle load, and roadway conditions, Cappello was unable to safely maintain control of the Peterbilt causing it to travel into the opposing lanes of SR-89 and roll over. The Peterbilt slid across both lanes of SR-89. The log load separated from the Peterbilt and slid across the lanes into a roadway marker. Both the Peterbilt and the log load came to rest on the east shoulder of SR-89. Cappello was transported to Enloe Medical Center in Chico for treatment of minor injuries.
