PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Southbound lanes of Interstate 5 were closed about two miles south of Wilsonville after multiple vehicles, including a semi-truck, were involved in a crash Monday afternoon for more than an hour. Around 5:30 p.m. ODOT tweeted one lane was open.

It’s unclear if there are any injuries.

Since the semi-truck involved in the crash is jackknifed on the road, the closure may be an extended one. ODOT officials say drivers should avoid the area by using an alternative route or to expect delays.

More to come.
