BAKER CITY, Ore. -- A multi-vehicle crash occurred on Interstate 84 in Oregon yesterday morning stopping traffic between Pendleton and Ontario involving at least 26 vehicles including a dozen semi-trucks. Twelve people were taken by ambulance to area hospitals including at least one person who was transferred to a hospital in Boise with serious injuries.
Oregon State Police report that the crash began around 4:54 in the morning involving a couple of semis that crashed on the interstate. The trucks were traveling down a hill, hit a patch of black ice and crashed causing a "cascade effect" involving several other vehicles.
At least 2 of the trucks were transporting hazardous materials which required hazmat teams to respond to the scene.
