At about 10:50 a.m., according to Oregon State Police, a rear-end collission occurred near milepost 4 on Interstate 205. The impact pushed one vehicle into the rear of a semi-trailer stopped on the shoulder of the road, causing approximately 90 gallons of diesel to spill from a punctured tank.

According to police, one driver was taken by a private party to an area hospital for medical evaluation.

All lanes were blocked and traffic was diverted onto the shoulder until ODOT and fire personnel cleaned up the spill. The freeway re-opened at 12:15 p.m.

Police did not release the names of the drivers, and no citations had been issued as of Thursday afternoon.
