PORTLAND, OR — An ambulance was called Friday morning after a crash involving a semi-truck near the Smith and Bybee Wetlands Natural Area in north Portland, according to KATU.
The accident took place on a span of North Marine Drive near the entrance to the preserve, west of Interstate 5. It was first reported by KATU shortly before 6:26 a.m.
Little information has been provided at this time, but two vehicles, a passenger car and a semi-truck, appear to have been involved. An ambulance was seen arriving at and leaving the scene, though no details regarding injuries have been shared.
All westbound lanes in the area were shut down in the immediate aftermath, causing traffic to be backed up to I-5. At 6:40 a.m., a single lane was reopened, but long delays remained. Motorists were urged to use extra caution as they approached the scene.
