UPDATE: I-84 between Ontario and Pendleton is now open after being closed for several hours Monday.

Oregon Department of Transportation says the closure was due to multiple vehicle crashes near milepost 223 and a secondary truck crash this afternoon near milepost 225.

Oregon State Police says a total of nine vehicles were involved, including semi trucks. Serious injuries were reported.

Dense fog and snowy conditions are still present in the area.

Emergency crews worked to remove crashed vehicles and injured motorists, and to get stranded traffic down from the mountain pass.

"Expect winter conditions on highways throughout the area. Slow down and drive with extra caution," stated Oregon Department of Transportation.
