PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Crews cleaned up a section of I-84 after two cars crashed into each other and caused oil to spill over the roadway Wednesday morning.

The Oregon Department of Transportation said said the crash took place on westbound I-84 at Lloyd Boulevard around 6 a.m.

Both the center and the right lanes were blocked due to the crash and oil spill, according to reports.

ODOT said crews put absorbent material on the spill and the substance was cleared from the road a short time later.

Traffic officials said traffic was backed up through the Hollywood District.
