CRESCENT, OR -- Just before 5:30 this morning, Oregon State Police (OSP) troopers and Oregon Department of Transportation officials responded to a commercial vehicle crash on Highway 58 near milepost 78 on Willamette Pass. Preliminary investigation indicates icy roads may have been a factor. A semi-tractor pulling double trailers lost control and one trailer separated then tipped over, blocking the roadway.

The highway re-opened just after 1 p.m. Troopers confirmed no Hazardous Material substance was released as a result of this crash. For up to date information on roadway closures go to tripcheck.com.
