Raspberry puree spills onto I-84 after semi crash

GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -

A semi truck crashed on Interstate 84 in Gresham, spilling raspberry puree onto the freeway shoulder Tuesday.

The crash happened at 181st Avenue after the morning commute, and ODOT crews shut down an offramp.

Officers said the truck was carrying raspberry puree in large, open-top totes.

It's not clear what caused the semi to crash, but police speculate it was caused by a combination of the load shifting and a gust of wind as the semi was driving up a clover-leaf-style off-ramp from I-84 westbound to 181st northbound.

By all accounts, the truck was driving very slowly," a police spokesman said.

No one was hurt in the wreck.

The ramp is expected to be closed until about 1 p.m.
