BAKER CITY, Ore. (KOIN 6) — I-84 is closed in both directions in eastern Oregon following a crash that involved at least 12 trucks and prompted a hazmat crew to go to the scene.

ODOT officials said westbound I-84 is closed in Ontario at Exit 371, and eastbound I-84 is closed at Exit 304 in Baker City, Exit 265 in LaGrand and Exit 216 east of Pendleton.

The road is expected to be closed well into the afternoon.

The crash happened early Saturday morning on the eastbound side near Milepost 318, east of Baker City. The exact details of how the crash happened has not been released.

Some hazardous material in the crash necessitated the hazmat crew, though it is not clear at this time what that hazardous material is.

KOIN 6 News will have more information as it develops.
