Truck Driver Killed In I-5 Crash


Oregon State Police is investigating a fatal truck crash on Interstate 5 near Rogue River.

Thursday at about 3:39 a.m., OSP troopers and emergency personnel responded to a fatal truck crash on Interstate 5 near milepost 45.

Preliminary investigation indicates that an International Box Truck hauling electronics, operated by 21-year-old Pavlo Hryzhuk, from Citrus Heights, California, was traveling southbound on Interstate 5. For unknown reasons the truck drifted to the right and collided with a large section of guardrail before traveling off a bridge and coming to rest on the roadway below. The truck came to rest on Twin Bridges Road, which is the access to Valley of the Rogue State Park.

Hryzhuk died at the scene. Investigators are looking at the possibility of fatigue contributing to the crash.
