US 101 remains closed at the Yaquina Bay Bridge in Newport (milepost 141) following a crash between a semi and a pickup. Reports from the scene indicate that the southbound truck was blown into the path of a northbound pickup. Injuries were minor. A bridge inspection indicates the crash did not result in any structural damage to the bridge. The bridge closure is expected to last until as late as 3 p.m. Tow trucks are now on scene but are having to wait for the winds to die down enough to make removal of the wreck done safely. There is no detour. Motorists should find an alternate route or postpone travel.
