Oregon State Police (OSP) and local emergency responders remain on scene investigating Tuesday morning's injury crash involving a commercial truck along the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 near milepost 284 in the Wilsonville area. A female inmate work crew member out of Multnomah County was injured and taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Updated information indicates on February 11, 2014 at approximately 10:20 a.m., OSP, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue (TVF&R) and local emergency responders were dispatched to the reported crash between Elligsen Road and Wilsonville Road interchanges. Upon arrival, a commercial truck was found on its side in the ditch along the shoulder between Interstate 5 and SW Boones Ferry Road.

TVF&R advises firefighter paramedics attended to three patients at the scene. A female inmate work crew member was transported by AMR ambulance to Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) with serious injuries as TVF&R firefighter paramedics continued to provide patient care. A second inmate was treated at scene but not transported. The truck driver was transported by ambulance to Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center for treatment of possible injury.

TVF&R Haz Mat firefighters are also working to mitigate environmental impacts from an estimated 25 - 50 gallon diesel fuel spill leaking from the overturned truck. Fifty feet of booming was placed in a culvert to contact the spill and firefighters are working with ODOT to pump the remaining fuel out of the truck's tanks.

OSP troopers are reconstructing the crash scene and will be on scene with other emergency responders for at least another hour. The center and right lanes of Interstate 5 southbound are closed as well as SW Boones Ferry Road that parallels the freeway lanes.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation. No names are available at this time. The two trailers were transporting paper products.

Multnomah County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) personnel are at the scene assisting OSP and Clackamas County Sheriff's Office. According to MCSO, the 3 person inmate crew supervised by a deputy was picking up litter on the side of the freeway as part of an ODOT contract. Questions about the work crew and their work should be directed to MCSO.

Traffic updates will be posted by ODOT on TripCheck.com.
