HOOD RIVER, Ore. – A semi-truck hauling a manufactured home crashed Monday morning while on Interstate 84 in Hood River, the Oregon Department of Transportation said.

The crash happened about 10 a.m. in the westbound lanes near Exit 63 in Hood River.

Initial reports say the driver was trying to take the exit when for some unknown reason the semi veered left, striking the exit sign and two fog markers.

The driver was taken to a nearby hospital with some minor injuries.

ODOT spokesperson Don Hamilton said the crash took about an hour and a half to clear.

A detour was in place that routed drivers off the interstate at Exit 63, and back on at the same on-ramp.

No word on what caused the semi driver to crash.
