It will be interesting to see what the guys come up with on this one.
That log is sheared by the dump truck.

WAG? Dump truck lost brakes, used log truck and side hill to slow down and stop?

In early 1910 issues of the Hood River Glacier, A.C. Lofts runs an advertisement for delivering coal and wood slabs of fir and oak for heating.
Maybe this is how he made the slabs.

Think Spinsur has a good guess. The dump truck obviously overtook the log truck as the top left of the dump bed sheared off a piece of the log on the right and forced the log truck load to shift to the left. Looks like the chain gut wrappers on the log truck kept the logs on the truck. In those days probably limped the log truck down the road to where they could do something with the logs.

The right side duals on the logging truck look like they might be low on air. I wonder if the driver stopped to take care of that and got rammed by the dump truck? The power pole would indicate that these vehicles may have been on a fairly main road and not just a logging road. Maybe heading down the Dee Highway from Parkdale, not far below the bridge over the East Fork?

Hope the dump truck driver was OK. The smaller tree above his cab came mighty close.
