PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A semi truck hauling double tankers crashed on Highway 22 Sunday, forcing a 20-mile closure.

The Oregon Department of Transportation said the highway is closed between milepost 60 and 81 (Santiam Junction).

There is no easy detour for vehicles traveling eastbound, and ODOT officials said travelers will want to avoid the area and use an alternate route.

No injuries were reported.

ODOT said the stretch will remain closed indefinitely while crews pump the fuel from the tankers.
