EUGENE, Ore. -- A three-car crash in the middle of rush hour closed both lanes of northbound Delta Highway on Tuesday, sending three to the hospital and snaring drivers in a traffic nightmare.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. near The Goodpasture Island exit.

An officer on the scene said this sort of accident happens quite often

"When it comes to about 4 to 6 p.m., northbound Delta people need to just drive safe," Sgt. Demian San Miguel said. "They need to drive slow. They need to be aware there's going to be congestion and there's going to be traffic."

Both northbound lanes were closed until nearly 9:30 pm while fuel and debris were cleared from the roadway.
