PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Interstate 84 was a mess for drivers in rush hour Thursday night in Portland.

Firefighters said a westbound car spun out and flew over the barrier into eastbound traffic near the exit for Cesar Chavez Boulevard. One woman suffered injuries that were non-life-threatening and was taken to the hospital.

A second crash then occurred as a result of the first one, according to firefighters. Nobody was hurt in the second crash.

At least two eastbound lanes were closed and one westbound lane was closed for several hours after the crash. Traffic finally reopened to all lanes just after 8 p.m.
