Semi truck full of chickens overturns on I-5 in Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. (KGW) — Two northbound lanes of Interstate 5 are closed about one mile north of Southwest Terwilliger Boulevard in Portland after a semi truck full of chickens overturned early Friday morning.

Traffic cameras in the area show a large backup of vehicles on the interstate, with traffic in one I-5 northbound lane slowly moving during the morning commute.

The Oregon Department of Transportation’s TripCheck website says drivers should expect delays. ODOT has not said how long the two I-5 northbound lanes could be closed.

It’s unclear what caused the semi truck to crash, or whether the driver of the semi truck was injured.
