@ORStatePolice @OregonDOT @KATUNews WATCH as @MikeKATU pulled up to the MAJOR CRASH site on I-5 near Wilsonville in the Chevy Traverse Live Drive.
All northbound lanes of I-5 are CLOSED there and won't be reopened, "until [this] afternoon," @OregonDOT said -- on @KATUNews >> https://katu.com/news/local/i-5-northbound-closed-after-semi-truck-driver-crashes-into-several-vehicles
CONFIRMED: @ORStatePolice says preliminary info shows a semi truck headed southbound on I-5 near Wilsonville crossed into the northbound lanes.
We’re seeing the interstate on the @OregonDOT cameras here in the @KATUNews #LiveDesk
More on efforts to put more @ORStatePolice troopers on Oregon highways tonight #LiveOnKMTR at 5 http://NBC16.com/WATCH https://twitter.com/KelseyReports/status/1230219714468532225
Oregon State Troopers are extremely sparse throughout the state. In fact, we’re one of the lowest ranked in the nation for staffing levels. Oregon SB 1545 would put hundreds of more troopers on the highways/interstates by 2030 for about $146m. More tonight #liveonkmtr #liveonkval
