It’s unclear what caused the semi-truck to lose control, but snowy conditions and icy roadways may spell trouble for commuters heading to and from the Portland area on Monday.

However, I-84 E is re-opened after Oregon State Police and Sheriff’s Deputies helped clear the semi-truck from that roadway after it jackknifed into a guardrail on the side of the roadway.
