EUGENE, Ore. -- A semi-truck hit the guard rail on I-5 North, at milepost 190, and overturned, leaving the highway scattered with pamphlets the semi-truck was previously carrying, and traffic backed up on Saturday.

Eugene Springfield Fire said that the semi-truck had hit the guard rail and stretched it across the road, so they used hydraulic tools to cut the guard rail and clean up the scattered paper to let the cars through.
