Traffic headed into Roseburg was backed up Saturday afternoon after a pickup truck jackknifed into the median, according to police.

Just after 1:15 p.m. Saturday, police said the southbound driver of a gray Ford F-150 lost control of his truck, which was pulling a travel trailer, and crashed into the median concrete barrier near milepost 127, Roseburg.

Stephen Thomas Fehring, 66, of Portland, said he choked on water and blacked out just prior to the crash, police said.

Southbound traffic was backed up for nearly two miles before crews were able to open the flow of traffic.

No one was injured and no citations were issued.
