The Oregon State Police was involved in the pursuit of a vehicle, according to Yamhill Communications Agency radio traffic. Speeds reached about 100 mph. In addition to law enforcement, fire and medical personnel also responded to the scene.

A detour is in place. Northbound motorists will be directed to Stockhoff Road, then to Starr Quarry road, then to the Amity-Dayton Highway. Southbound motorists will be directed to Palmer Creek Road, then to Wallace Road.

The closure could last as late as 10:30 a.m.

Motorists should anticipate delays or plan an alternate route.
