Freezing rain and icy roads cause three crashes near Crater Lake National Park
Officials said the crashes started at around 11 a.m. Friday when a commercial truck towing two trailers of pears lost control while trying to drive through an area where other semi trucks were chaining up. The rear trailer slid into one of the parked trucks and the driver (who was putting chains on his vehicle) had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit, police officials said. Pears and other items from the stopped trailer littered the roadway.
