One person was not injured Wednesday night after their vehicle crashed into a several large boulders during a landslide on Interstate 84 about one mile west of Hood River. The slide is blocking the eastbound lanes and one westbound lane. ODOT is on scene working to clear the slide before deciding when it is safe to reopen the eastbound lanes for traffic.

At approximately 7:26 p.m. Wednesday, a passenger car driven by DANIEL KOOPMAN, age 54, from Summerville, Oregon, was eastbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 61 when a landslide, full of huge boulders, came down from the south side of the freeway. Large boulders and debris slid across the eastbound lanes, pushing the concrete center barrier into the left westbound lane. Koopman’s car collided with large boulders as the slide came down. Incredibly he was not injured.

According to ODOT’s TripCheck.com, eastbound lanes are closed at milepost 56 and travelers are asked to use an alternative route until further notice. Traffic updates are posted on TripCheck.com

Questions regarding the slide and roadway debris clearance should be directed to ODOT.
