ODOT: SW Oregon: An ODOT de-icer truck was involved in a multi-vehicle crash on NB Interstate 5 south of exit 88 (Azalea). Vehicles passing in the fast lane lost control and struck the de-cier truck. ODOT asks drivers to use extreme caution in the current winter conditions and give a wide berth to emergency response vehicles, de-icer trucks and snowplows. ODOT advises motorists to follow de-icer trucks and snowplows on I-5 and wait to pass when the equipment is off the highway.
ODOT: SW Oregon: Interstate 5 reopened south of Cottage Grove at 8 a.m., following a semi fire. Both northbound lanes are open; one southbound lane is open as crews remove the burned semi. Drivers should expect delays as traffic backups clear.
