PORTLAND – A semi truck full of raspberry puree slowed down traffic on Interstate 84 Tuesday morning.

The truck crashed in the westbound lanes of I-84 near 181st avenue at about 9:30 a.m., according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.

One westbound lane of the freeway and the northbound on-ramp were closed for nearly six hours while crews cleaned up the spill.

Police said a gust of wind and an unbalanced load caused the truck to topple over.
