TIGARD, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Two vehicles in a Men’s Wearhouse parking lot in Tigard were damaged after a semi-truck suffered a tire malfunction on Monday.
Police said a commercial truck pulling a flatbed semi-trailer was traveling southbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 290 when the left rear dual axle and wheels broke loose just before 3 p.m.
The wheels and axle struck the center concrete barrier, bounced back across the southbound lanes and struck the right front area of a SUV.
Authorities said the wheels and axle then continued across the southbound exit off ramp, through a fence and struck two unoccupied vehicles in a parking lot near a Men’s Wearhouse business.
Both vehicles were moderately damaged, police said. No one was injured.
No citations were issued.
The right southbound lane of I-5 was closed for a few hours while crews worked to remove the semi-truck.
