Eastbound Interstate 84 is closed between exit 216 about six miles east of Pendleton and exit 265 east of La Grande, and westbound between exits 302 in Baker City and 216 due to multiple truck crashes and icy conditions, the Oregon Department of Transportation said Thursday morning.

Eastbound Interstate 84 is closed between exit 216 about six miles east of Pendleton and exit 265 east of La Grande, and westbound between exits 302 in Baker City and 216 due to multiple truck crashes and icy conditions, the Oregon Department of Transportation said Thursday morning.

Westbound I-84 also is closed to commercial trucks in Ontario at exit 374 because there is limited parking space for them in LaGrande and Baker City.

The first crash was reported around 4:15 a.m. and closures started around 5:45 a.m., according to Tom Strandberg, public information officer for ODOT.

The number of vehicles involved in the crash is unknown, but Strandberg said it appears to be about half a dozen.

Drivers are being asked to seek alternate routes. The closures are expected to last for several hours.
