WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) - An overturned semi-truck blocked traffic on Northwest Old Cornelius Pass Road in Washington County.
Crews responded Friday evening and closed the road between Northwest Skyline Boulevard and Northwest Philips Road.
Old Cornelius Pass Road is the current detour for car traffic while Cornelius Pass Road is closed for repairs.
Deputies said the road would remain closed in the area overnight as crews, including six tow trucks, worked to clear the scene.
Drivers were asked to use alternate routes, including Germantown Road from Washington County to Skyline Boulevard.
It’s not clear what caused the semi-truck to tip. The driver was cited on charges of failing to obey a traffic control device and careless driving.
Deputies said there were no serious injuries, but "sadly lots of spilled tea."
