Trooper: Freezing fog to blame for crashes a minute apart on I-5 near Eugene
GOSHEN, Ore. - Police blame freezing fog for two early morning crashes that took place just a minute apart Monday on Interstate 5 near Goshen.
Troopers said speed may have been a factor, but the weather was - and will continue to be - a huge danger on the road.
"People are still going too fast in the morning," Oregon State Police Senior Trooper Cecil Arient said. "We got ice out, it's getting slick out, this is going to be a bad week, it's going to be freezing all week. People got to slow down, give themselves more time to get to work. We had two cars go off the road here a minute apart. They just hit ice, went off the road. Luckily it's on grass shoulder and nobody got hurt."
