HARRISBURG, Ore. -- A semi-truck headed east on Diamond Hill Drive crashed Friday morning as it turned northbound onto I-5, closing the on-ramp at milepost 209.

The driver, who suffered no serious injuries, said he was going 15 to 20 mph making the turn when the truck tipped over, according to Oregon State Police.

The trailer was carrying crushed up cars.

Before the semi-truck could be set upright, officials had to pump out 250 gallons of fuel from the gas tank, causing delays in reopening the on-ramp.

There was also a small oil leak from the truck, which has been cleared.
