US 97 near Warm Springs is closed due to a tanker truck that reportedly went off the road, causing a fire. The driver of that tanker has not been found.

As of now ODOT has limited information about the accident. Peter Murphy, the Public Information Officer for ODOT, said he expects the highway will be open within the next hour or so, “We’re not quite sure [how long the roadway will be closed], but we’re trying to get it open,” explained Murphy.

Murphy reported that as of now, the tanker’s driver is missing (no word on where he might be) and he believes no one else was injured in incident.

If you're heading up that way today, you should probably rethink your plans, at least for this morning.
