PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A multi-vehicle crash snarled northbound I-5 near La Center for hours Wednesday, backing up traffic for 10 miles at one point.
Three commercial vehicles, two passenger vehicles and a truck towing a trailer were involved in the crash, which has also resulted in about 70 gallons of fuel spilling into a nearby river.
But the jam cleared around 1:30 p.m., though it took a while for traffic to move freely again.
The crash had blocked the right and center lanes of I-5 near milepost 19, according to Washington authorities.
It’s unclear if there are any injuries.
