Truck & Camper Trailer Wreck Shuts Down I-5
At 5:43pm April 13, North Douglas County Fire & EMS was dispatched to a report of a truck and camper trailer rollover at mile post 144 southbound on I-5. Fire crews arrived to a camper trailer on its side still attached to the truck blocking both lanes of traffic. Traffic quickly backed-up and made it difficult for other responding units and tow trucks to access the incident. After almost an hour, Oregon State Police was able to push the truck and trailer off the roadway with their patrol car to reopen the freeway to allow over four miles of backed up traffic through. Nobody was injured in the wreck.
