Overturned Log truck closes Mt. Hermon

Felton, CA…On 10/22/2013 at approximately 0807 hrs. a 49 year old Santa Cruz man was driving a Freightliner semi-truck, fully loaded with redwood logs, southbound on Graham Hill Rd. Delaney began to make a left turn onto eastbound Mount Hermon Rd. when his vehicle suddenly rolled onto its right (passenger) side. Delaney was not wearing a safety belt at the time of the collision and sustained minor injuries. Delaney was treated at the scene but declined medical transportation. The eastbound lanes of Mount Hermon Rd. (from Graham Hill Rd.) will be closed until early afternoon to remove the logs and overturned semi truck.
