In just a few seconds, actions taken by two drivers respectively operating a runaway fully-loaded log semi-tractor-trailer and a pickup served to lessen the effect of an imminent crash.
The mishap occurred on Leota Road about 1,000 feet from the Scott/Washington County line.
Terry A. Peacock, 39, Austin, was at the wheel of the big rig just before 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 10. The semi's trailer, owned by Peacock Logging of Austin, was loaded with massive logs that had been recently harvested. As he steered the 1995 Volvo rig east on Leota Rd., Peacock told Deputy Mark Shapinsky that he began experiencing mechanical problems. When the rig came down a fairly steep grade on the county road, Peacock said the motor quit, and he started losing air pressure necessary to operate his brakes.

Members of the Austin Lions Club made plans recently for activities in April and May.
The club held a very successful fund-raising pancake breakfast on March 13. Funds collected will be presented to an Austin Middle School student who is raising money to pay for a specially-trained dog that will alert the girl to nuts and nut dust. The student is allergic to nuts, so much so that the dog is needed to protect her from potentially fatal reactions.
Prior to that, the Lions enjoyed a scavenger hunt of old items. Members had to locate a 1943 penny, a three-cent stamp and old copies of Lions publications among other items to win. The Red Team of J.D. Buchanan, David Lally, Raleigh Campbell and Ralph Randall won the contest and were awarded a new traveling trophy. Placing second was the team of Albert Thormyer, Don Taylor and Glen Hollan.
