A sudden and powerful hailstorm caused multiple crashes and minor injuries on Interstate 5 south of Salem Tuesday, according to Oregon State Police troopers.

Between noon and 1 p.m., troopers responded to eight reported crashes.  Several minor injuries were reported.

The accidents happened at about the same time that a tornado ripped through the city of Aumsville, damaging dozens of buildings. Full coverage: Tornado tears through Aumsville.
