SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

Traffic was delayed south of Salem Wednesday morning after a semi carrying lumber lost control and crashed, spilling its load.

Marion County deputies said the truck was heading east on Delaney Road Southeast near Battle Creek Road when the driver lost control of the brakes.

The truck blew through an intersection and crashed into a rock retaining wall before coming to a stop in the yard of a nearby home.

Deputies said traffic in the area would be delayed while crews worked to clean up the lumber and move the truck out of the way. Deputies said the scene likely wouldn't be clear until after the lunch hour.

There were no reports of injuries from the crash.
