The Oregon Department of Transportation is working to clear vehicles after an early morning crash on the Siskiyou Summit section of Interstate 5.
Travelers should use caution in the area between mile posts 4 and 7 as first responders continue to work the scene of the crash, according to a Facebook post on the Jackson County Fire District No. 5 firefighters local page. A lane is closed in both directions, according to TripCheck, which said delays of up to 20 minutes could be expected as of late Monday morning. Ashland Fire and Rescue, Oregon State Police and CAL Fire Siskiyou Unit responded to the incident.
The Facebook post features photos of a red truck on its side just off the road and a red semi-truck with its cab severely damaged. No injuries were reported in the Facebook post, which said there were two wrecks.
