Interstate 84 re-opens after trucks crash

The eastbound lanes of Interstate 84, which were closed for several hours Thursday morning after three trucks crashed on an icy stretch near Baker City, re-opened about 1:30 p.m.

The eastbound freeway was initially closed about 5:30 a.m. at the site of the truck crashes, near Pleasant Valley about 14 miles east of Baker City.

Later in the morning the eastbound lanes were closed at La Grande, and then at Milepost 216 just east of Pendleton, to prevent traffic from backing up. 

At about 5:30 a.m. a commercial truck pulling a semi-trailer traveling eastbound near milepost 318 lost control and jackknifed. A second commercial truck pulling a trailer struck the rear of the first trailer. A third commercial truck pulling two trailers collided with the first truck before continuing down the road and coming to rest partially off the freeway. No drivers were injured.
