Police say a driver not paying attention is to blame for a crash that shut down Highway 97 Tuesday morning near Chiloquin.  A Freightliner was southbound on the highway when it approached a line of vehicles stopped for construction – that truck didn’t stop, rear-ending another semi, and that caused it to burst into flames.  The driver of the Freightliner was taken to the hospital, and got a ticket for careless driving.
