Jackknifed semi cleared after closing westbound I-84 near I-205 split

PORTLAND, Ore. – A semi that jackknifed just past the I-205 split blocked the westbound lanes of Interstate 84 on Thursday morning shortly after 6:30, before finally being cleared around 9 a.m.

Traffic was diverted to I-205 while it was being cleared.

One lane reopened around 8 a.m., but another accident further complicated matters. The second crash happened in the backup, near 102nd Ave., closing the left lane.
