Portland, OR (June 17, 2022) – On Friday, June 17th, Portland police and first responders were sent to the scene of an automobile collision that resulted in injuries.
At roughly 11:40 a.m., an accident happened in the northbound lanes of Interstate 5 near the Terwilliger Boulevard exit.
When authorities arrived on the scene, they saw at least one person suffering from injuries sustained in the incident. However, the condition of the injured person is unknown at this time, and there is no information on what caused the collision.
Due to traffic congestion in the area, motorists were advised to use a different route. According to authorities, no charges have been made in connection with the crash. Traffic on the road was virtually at a standstill for about an hour while the accident site was investigated and scrubbed.
There is no word on whether any charges will be issued as a consequence of the incident. The inquiry is still underway, according to authorities, and no other information has been released at this time.
We’d like to express our consolations, thoughts, and best wishes to everyone affected by the Portland car wreck. We wish them the best of luck in their recovery.

Many of these accident victims have suffered injury as a result of circumstances beyond their control. Even worse, reckless and careless drivers cause hundreds of accidents each year.
