WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR — Serious injuries were reported early Friday after a two-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 26 near Cedar Hills, according to KATU.
The accident occurred on the westbound lanes near Exit 69B to Oregon State Highway 217 at about 3:30 a.m.
At this time, authorities have not released information on the circumstances of the wreck, but all westbound lanes near the ramp were shut down during the response.
All westbound traffic was forced to detour at OR-217 and take the Barnes/Cedar Hills entrance ramp to re-enter US-26. Motorists were advised to use extra caution as they approach the area.
By 8:30 a.m., a westbound lane had reopened, but the right lane and exit ramp remained blocked. A secondary crash in the traffic backup later caused the left lane OR-217 to close.
No other details have been shared at this time.
