CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- Troopers are blaming icy conditions for a series of crashes along Interstate 5 this morning. Emergency crews responded to four crashes near mile marker 40 in Central Point. Three of the four crashes happened in the southbound lanes while one occurred less than a quarter of a mile away in the northbound lanes.
Troopers say the first crash happened around 4:30 on Monday morning. Drivers of the crashes that followed told Newswatch 12 that they were trying to avoid the first crash when they also hit a patch of ice.
Trooper say the crash in the northbound lane was also caused by icy road conditions.
Two of the crashes were rollovers. No one was hurt or taken to the hospital.
