BEND, OR -- Multiple vehicles were involved in a wreck that tied up Highway 97, just north of Bend, for several hours during Tuesday's morning commute. The crash occurred at about 8:15 and involved two pickups and a semi. 

 

According to Oregon State Police, the driver of a southbound semi truck failed to stop for traffic that had backed up due to congestion, near Cooley Road, causing a chain-reaction. The big rig hit a box truck, which then hit a Ford pickup; the Ford then hit a Toyota Tundra. The driver of the semi had to be cut out of the cab; he was taken to the hospital. No other injuries were reported. 
 
The highway was completely closed for just over an hour. All lanes finally reopened just before 11 a.m.
