Monster truck mishap in Ore. sends 3 to hospital

HARRISBURG, Ore.

Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller says the driver reported losing control of his 1975 Ford pickup, with oversized tires, during a race. He then crossed a barrier before coming to a stop in the spectator area at the Harrisburg MotorSports Complex.

One fan caught part of the crash on video during a drag race. Three people are hospitalized but they are expected to survive. The truck driver, Kyle Atchley, was not injured.
