Semi truck crash disrupts I-5 northbound
MYRTLE CREEK, Ore. - A semi truck crashed on Interstate 5, bringing the northbound lanes to a halt Friday morning.
The truck hit an impact attenuator - also known as a "crash cushion" - at the top of Exit 108 around 10:45 a.m.
State police suspect driver fatigue contributed to the crash.
One northbound lane and the shoulder of the road remained closed as of 3:13 p.m., according to the Oregon DOT.
Several gallons of fuel spilled from the truck's tanks but were contained with barriers and absorbent materials placed by Myrtle Creek Fire Department firefighters, state police said.
The truck's driver, Stanley Diggs, 58, of Jefferson was not injured.
