Neither driver Bill Gallauher, 48, nor his passenger, Shawn Peterson, 22, both of Port Angeles, was hurt when Gallauher's 1998 Toyota Tacoma overturned several times near Milepost 233 at Maple Grove Road, said Clallam County Fire District No. 2 Fire Chief Sam Phillips.
The pickup truck came to rest in the center of the two-lane highway.
Traffic was blocked at about 9:55 a.m. The state Department of Transportation reported that one lane had been reopened by 10:30 a.m., and both lanes were reopened at 11:02 a.m.
A State Patrol trooper removed the truck and debris from the roadway, Phillips said.
Gallauher and Peterson freed themselves from the upside-down vehicle and did not require medical assistance, the fire chief said.
Fire department personnel said witnesses told them that a westbound passenger van slowed to turn left onto Maple Grove Road when Gallauher, who was following the van, swerved to avoid a rear-end collision.
The truck left the roadway before it lost control and rolled over, the fire department said.
Fire District No. 2 responded with a medic unit, fire engine, command vehicle and eight firefighters/medics.
