Crashed truck carrying wind turbine tower closes I-84 in eastern Oregon

A truck transporting a large section of a wind turbine tower crashed on westbound Interstate 84, closing both directions of the freeway between exit 304 North of Baker City and exit 374 near Ontario on Wednesday.

The closure is also impacting eastbound traffic from exit 265 near La Grande to Ontario.

A photo shared by the Oregon Department of Transportation shows a semitruck on its side. A wind turbine section is blocking the roadway.

Transportation officials warned that the eastern Oregon stretch of I-84 would be closed for several hours. It’s unclear what caused the crash or if anyone was injured.

U.S. 30 and Oregon 245 are closed to non-local traffic and are not available as detour routes, the department said. Motorists can check TripCheck for updates.
