POWELL BUTTE, OR -- Icy conditions and low visibility likely contributed to a multi-vehicle pile-up in Powell Butte during Thursday's morning commute, which closed Highway 126 for about eight hours.

 

The first crash was reported just before 7 a.m. According to the Crook County Sheriff’s Office, several other collisions occurred as vehicles slowed for the back-up and emergency vehicles. A van transporting liquid oxygen was heavily damaged, initiating a hazmat response.
