Semi truck crash on I-84

BAKER CITY, Ore. — A section of Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon reopened late Tuesday night, hours after it was closed down due to multiple semi-truck crashes on the icy freeway.

The Oregon Department of Transportation announced Tuesday afternoon that the interstate was closed in both directions between Pendleton and Baker City.

The westbound closure was later extended to Ontario due to limited parking in Baker City, according to ODOT.

At least two semis wrecked near mileposts 270 and 258 completely blocking the westbound lanes. 

The blockage also prevented the return of ODOT crews who had been out treating snow and ice on I-84.

Drivers in the area should expect winter weather conditions and are urged to check Tripcheck.com or call 800-977-6368 before heading out.

It's unclear whether anyone was injured in the semi-truck crashes.
