A log truck tipped over on Highway 12 just east of Fall Creek this morning, blocking traffic.

The Eau Claire County Sheriff's Office says the truck went into the ditch and rolled onto its side around 5:30am. The driver was not hurt. One lane was closed while the logs were off-loaded. Both lanes were then closed for a little under an hour while the truck was righted and removed from the scene. The highway reopened at 8am. The cause of the accident is under investigation.
