Semi-truck causes I-5 blockage

Ashland, Ore. —  A semi-truck blocked the I-5 on-ramp Wednesday afternoon after attempting a U-turn on a narrow road.

The OSP officer at the scene told NBC5 that the driver was heading northbound when he noticed his brakes were too hot. He then took exit 11 and pulled over to let them cool.
When the driver tried to re-enter the freeway, he took a U-turn the wrong way. When he tried to correct, the truck slid in the ditch.

No one was hurt. The truck was moved late afternoon.
