Lane of Willamette Highway to stay closed after tanker crash

OAKRIDGE, Ore. — The Oregon Department of Transportation says the eastbound lane of the Willamette Highway will remain closed for at least several days west of Oakridge after a fuel truck crashed.

The department says the semi-truck crashed and caught fire late Saturday night while carrying more than 10,000 gallons of fuel, and hazmat crews will be responding for several days.

There will be short delays in both directions as equipment is moved on and off the highway. The highway is also known as Oregon Route 58. It runs southeast of Eugene.
