PORTLAND – Icy roads in Portland Wednesday morning led to a rollover crash on the Hawthorne Bridge.

The crash was reported just before 6 a.m. and one westbound lane was temporarily shut down approaching the bridge.

Dispatchers initially reported injuries in the crash, but police did not release further details.

Icy conditions were causing spinouts and near misses throughout the morning and transportation officials warned that the bridges were the worst spots for drivers.

Bicyclists were also warned to look out for slick spots.
