Jackknifed semi ruptures on I-84

Jackknifed semi ruptures on I-84

Freezing rain made driving difficult on I-84 near Pendleton Tuesday morning.  A Fed Ex truck pulling two trailers was eastbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 205 when the trailers began to jackknife. Another commercial truck traveling behind crashed into one of the trailers, splitting it open and spilling its contents along the freeway. Neither driver was injured.

Oregon State Police, ODOT and FedEx representatives responded to the scene. The eastbound lanes were closed until emergency responders were able to get one lane open while the wreckage was cleared.

Several other traffic crashes occurred in the general area as well as east of Pendleton during the night that affected Interstate 84 and area roads.
