Semi-trucks overturn in Corbett
A rollover collision on I-84 has brought traffic to a crawl at milepost 23 in Corbett.
The collision, which caused two trailers to overturn, happened sometime after midnight Tuesday, according to Oregon Department of Transportation.
While officials had to help one driver get out of their semi, no one suffered any injuries, according to a KOIN 6 news report.
ODOT crews reopened one westbound lane at the crash scene shortly before 7 a.m., but eastbound lanes are expected to remain closed for several more hours. Drivers should expect lengthy delays during their Tuesday morning commute or plan an alternate route. Eastbound traffic is closed at exit 17 in Troutdale to exit 25 while westbound traffic being directed through one lane near milepost 23.
A long line of semi-trucks parked on the shoulders, waiting for the highway to reopen.
About five tow trucks help move the trucks and overturned trailers.
It's unclear what caused the crash, but weather may have played a factor as I-84 has dealt with winter conditions in the last few days.
