BAKER CITY, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say the driver of a commercial truck has been killed in an accident on icy Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon near the Idaho border.

Lt. Josh Brooks says preliminary investigation indicates the driver of a truck-trailer rig lost control of the westbound vehicle on a curve late Monday afternoon, then slid off the road into the median, went over an embankment and into a guardrail.

The driver was not immediately identified pending notification of relatives.

Brooks says two other vehicles collided with the trailer. Their occupants were taken to a Baker City hospital but no major injuries were reported.

State police say the crash blocked the freeway for several hours.
