Man dies on Interstate 84 after car rear-ends semi truck
A motorist has died after his car struck a semi truck "from behind" on Interstate 84, police say.
East Precinct officers responded to westbound I-84 at 122nd Avenue around 7:39 p.m. on Friday, June 21, according to a news release.
Arriving officers determined the adult male driver was dead at the scene.
"The semi driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators," police say.
The Major Crash Team investigated at the scene, and I-84 west was closed at 181st Avenue for some time. All traffic lanes have since re-opened.
Police say they will identify the deceased motorist later. Anyone with information is asked to call (503) 823-3333.
