WHITE CITY, Ore. -- Kirtland Road is back open after multiple crashes near White City on Tuesday morning closed the roadway down, according to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff's deputies and crews from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) were on the scene Tuesday morning where a semi-truck had crashed over a slight embankment.

While road crews and emergency services responded, authorities closed down Kirtland between West Antelope Road in the east and I-5 in the west.
