Poor road conditions blamed for I-84 crashes

OSP continues to investigate Sunday evening crash that left two dead 

The Oregon State Police on Monday morning remained at the scene of a fatal multi-vehicle crash that occurred Sunday night on Interstate 84. 

Westbound lanes were closed from milepost 265 to 224 due to the crash in the Cabbage Hill area.

According to the OSP, at about 7:30 p.m. Sunday, troopers, ODOT and emergency responders were dispatched to reports of multiple crashes related to icy conditions in the westbound lanes of I-84 near milepost 221. Troopers and emergency responders confirmed multiple crash scenes and that two people, from separate vehicles, had died.

At least half a dozen commercial vehicles were involved in crashes at separate incident scenes.

Monday morning, ODOT closed eastbound lanes of I-84 in order to let passenger vehicles that were stranded to go through. Eastbound lanes should be reopened for normal use by around noon, said ODOT spokesperson Tom Strandberg.

There is no time frame for when westbound lanes may open up.

“We’re trying to do whatever we can to get it opened up as soon as possible,” Strandberg said. “We’re asking folks to drive with extra caution.”

I-84 was closed for parts of Saturday, too, over weather concerns. Officials say dense fog has created icy conditions and low visibility in the Cabbage Hill area.

Motorists should expect possible delays and should check TripCheck.com for road conditions.
