Three-car crash jams eastbound Oregon

 

A three-car crash caused "significant" traffic delays on Oregon Expressway due to a three-car collision at West Bayshore Road Wednesday afternoon, according to several reports. But there was only a minor injury, officials said.

Several police and fire vehicles responded at the scene, as well as a paramedic van.

Deputy Fire Chief Roger Bloom said police were on hand to help move traffic, but that eastbound Oregon was significantly jammed by closure of the right lane due to the accident.

The collision was first reported at 4:53 p.m. One witness reported seeing a person on the ground being attended to by paramedics. The injured person was transported to Stanford Hospital for treatment.

The scene was reported cleared by about 6 p.m.

Details of the crash were not immediately available.
