LAKE OSWEGO, Ore. -- The Interstate 5 commute slowed at Kruse Way Wednesday morning after a semi-truck jackknifed and its load spilled on the northbound of-ramp.

The crash was reportedly just before 1:30 a.m. and the cleanup lasted nearly seven hours.

After the wreckage was removed, the contents of the load were transferred to a second trailer, according to Oregon Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kimberly Dinwiddie.

There were no injuries reported in the crash and no other vehicles were involved. Investigators have not said what caused the crash.
