PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Officials say a 62-year-old man has died after the semitrailer he was driving crashed and caused roughly 7,000 gallons of milk to spill on Interstate 84 near Boardman.

The Oregonian reports (https://goo.gl/CziWFn) that Oregon State Police say in a news release that James Crow had been driving a 2016 Freightliner Monday when it drifted off the highway and rolled onto its side. Rescuers worked for two hours to pull Crow from the wreckage. He was taken to a Portland hospital and later died.

Officials say the spilled milk ended up in a ditch near the crash site and had flowed into the state-managed Coyote Springs Wildlife area.

The release says officials found no immediate loss of fish or wildlife, and are in the process of cleaning up the site.
