Double-semi wreck leaves three trapped for over an hour


A semi truck crashed into the back of another rig at high speeds in Oregon Friday morning, trapping three people inside the wreckage. 

The accident happened in Brownsville at around 2:30 a.m. in the northbound lanes of Interstate 5. 

According to News 10, a 2015 Volvo semi truck was in the slow lane when it was rear ended by a blue tractor trailer traveling “at a high rate of speed.”

The collision left three people trapped inside of the wreckage for an hour as firefighters worked to free them. All three were transported to a nearby hospital, but their conditions and identities are not known. 

In addition to the three people, one of the investigating troopers discovered a small, uninjured dog inside the cab of the Volvo truck. It was taken to a nearby animal shelter for safekeeping.
