A semi-truck hauling lumber from South Coast Lumber Co. in Brookings overturned while the driver was maneuvering a curve north of Patrick Creek Lodge on U.S. Highway 199 on Monday morning.

The driver was uninjured, but the accident closed the highway for about half an hour and limited traffic to one lane for longer.
