PORTLAND, Oregon - On March 25, 2021, at about 2:14 a.m., Portland Police were dispatched to reports of a wrong way driver on Interstate 84.

Breaking story ...

Multiple callers reported seeing a vehicle travelling westbound in the traffic lanes of eastbound I-84. Callers soon reported a collision on eastbound I-84 in the vicinity of Interstate 205.

Officers on the scene confirm that there has been what appears to be a head on collision on eastbound I-84 involving two vehicles. There are two fatalities.

Traffic on eastbound I-84 is shut down at Northeast 68th Avenue and is being diverted onto surface streets. Anyone planning to use eastbound I-84 in the next few hours should find alternate routes. This closure will impact traffic on surface streets and possibly other freeways for the next few hours.
