The truck rolled onto its side and spilled concrete onto the road. The highway was closed for about four hours.

Medics took Storm to a hospital. He was later flown by air ambulance to a medical center in Bend, Ore.

It’s unclear what caused the truck to travel off the highway.

The truck is registered to Prineville Sand and Gravel, Hastings said.
