Motorists trying to access northbound Interstate 5 from exit 58 in Grants Pass could see intermittent delays throughout the day as officials unload cargo of frozen strawberry from a crashed semi.

The truck crashed early this morning, the Oregon Department of Transportation. The driver was not injured and the load of strawberries didn't spill. Removing the cargo, however, will make getting the truck back on the highway easier, officials explained.

"You can't get (it) out of there unless you get the weight out," said ODOT public affairs official Gary Leaming.

During the removal, the freeway's northbound slow lane will be closed. Drivers who are trying to get onto the highway from exit 58 will be directed to the Merlin exit using Vine Street.

"The I-5 mainline shouldn't be affected other than the lane closure," Leaming said. "We'll have it all signed. There shouldn't be any confusion for drivers."
