Just one more for the road.....

State police say the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife driver who crashed his state-owned tanker truck Tuesday, spilling a load of 11,000 juvenile salmon on the McKenzie Highway near Walterville, may have been under the influence of alcohol.

Ray C. Lewis, 45, of Umpqua, had an initial medical blood alcohol level of 0.29 percent, Oregon State Police Lt. Josh Brooks said today.

That’s more than three times the legal limit for a passenger-vehicle driver and nearly 7 times the legal limit for someone using a commercial driver’s license.
