One I-5 NB lane reopens after semi crash near Terwilliger


Condition of patients remains unknown

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — All lanes of a stretch of northbound Interstate 5 has reopened after hours of being closed due to a semi-truck crash Wednesday morning.

Just before 4:30 a.m., a semi-truck trailer crashed onto its side and ended up on top of another car on I-5 NB at Southwest Terwilliger Boulevard. Authorities say the crash did not result in any deaths — but the extent of any injuries is not known at this time.

All patients inside the car have been extricated and sent to the hospital.

“Righting and removing the truck has been delayed by the damage it experienced in the crash,” ODOT said Wednesday. “We expect to remove the truck soon and hope to reopen additional lanes as soon as safely possible. Travelers should still expect delays or find an alternate route.”
