At least 7 dead, several injured in crash on I-5 south of Salem


At least seven adults are dead and several are injured in a crash on Interstate 5 between Salem and Albany Thursday afternoon, according to Oregon State Police.

The accident happened shortly after

Police say two semi-trucks and a van were involved in the crash, but the cause of the crash remains unknown.

The white Ford passenger van at the scene was badly crushed. Straw sun hats and shovels can be seen among the wreckage.

A Target semi truck at the scene had damage to its rear end, and a black semi truck with tarps covering the sides also appeared to be part of the crash scene.

At least seven adults were killed Thursday in a three-vehicle crash on northbound Interstate 5 between Salem and Albany, Oregon.

A witness at the scene said it appeared the van had been crushed between the two semis from the front and back.

“Judging by the damage, it looked like the van was crushed,” Adrian Gonzalez said. “It was hit very hard.”

He described two Lifeflight Air Medical Services helicopters landing nearby and taking people from the scene while paramedics treated others at the scene.
