A crash at the 2nd St overpass closed the overpass to northbound traffic for around 30 minutes Friday afternoon.

Second street overpass was closed to northbound traffic for close to half an hour Friday afternoon following a two car injury accident.

Robert Worth of Hood River suffered minor injuries when his Chevy van was hit in the side while traveling northbound on the overpass by a truck driven by Alan Rogers of Cook, Washington as Worth was exiting the freeway.

Hood River police cited Rodgers for failure to yield. Hood River Fire Department medics treated Worth at the scene.

The scene was cleared around 30 minutes after the accident

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive

The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
