A pileup involving a logging truck and more than 40 other vehicles has resulted in at least 10 injuries on Idaho's main east-west highway.

A pileup involving a logging truck and more than 40 other vehicles has resulted in at least 10 injuries on Idaho's main east-west highway.

Idaho State Police say the crash started when fog rolled in Thursday morning as troopers tried to clear a previous wreck on Interstate 84 west of Boise.

Police say a motorist tried to change lanes to move away from the previous crash but clipped another vehicle. That caused a chain reaction involving the logging truck, which clipped other tractor trailers in the interstate's westbound lanes.

Authorities say no fatalities have been reported, but one person has been taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

Thursday morning's wintry storm, stretching from the Oregon coast to Mount Hood and from Eugene into southwest Washington, did more than create white-out conditions and dump half a foot of snow in places:

It also set the stage for a series of traffic crashes along Interstate 5 that closed long stretches of the major north-south throughway.

Fortunately, there have been only minor injuries, said a spokesman for Oregon State Police. But the mostly low-speed crashes, beginning shortly after 8 a.m., overwhelmed responders.
