Tanker truck crash closes Cornelius Pass Road

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A tanker truck overturned on Cornelius Pass Road on Wednesday morning, spilling liquid fertilizer onto the road.

Multnomah County deputies said the tanker rolled onto its side near Northwest Eighth Avenue. Deputies found the liquid leaking onto the road when they arrived at the scene, but they said the liquid does not pose a serious danger to the public.

The spill has since been contained and a private Hazmat team is cleaning up the spill.

Deputies said the driver suffered only minor injuries and was treated at the crash scene.

Cornelius Pass Road is expected to be closed between Skyline Boulevard and Highway 30 for several hours while crews clean up the crash.

Drivers should plan on using alternate routes for the evening commute.
