    I dunno if it's been posted here already, but I 5 northound is completely closed around mm 280. Not sure on the exact spot, another driver just told me. Not expected to open till noon. Plan accordingly.

    Yeah I heard about this early today. A Heartland rig crossed the median from the NB lanes into the SB lanes and took out a few oncoming cars. Several injuries but no fatalities. Happened in Wilsonville just south of Portland.

    I know where that is.

    Happy no one got killed. That we know of. What a mess.

    My prayers to all who are in difficulty because of this.

    I saw some pics from the accident and it was at MM 284, so he must have just gotten on the highway. Looked like a heavy hauler for local jobs.
