Michael Cannon, of Hermiston, was hauling a mobile home westbound on Interstate 84 near Hood River on Monday when he crashed, causing the interstate to remain closed for more than an hour.


A Hermiston man crashed a truck hauling a manufactured home on Monday morning in Hood River, blocking the westbound lanes of Interstate 84 for nearly 90 minutes.

Michael Cannon, 36, was exiting the interstate near milepost 64 when the vehicle veered left for an unknown reason, entering the unpaved shoulder and hitting the exit sign and two fog markers. It came to rest across both lanes of I-84.

Cannon was taken by ambulance to Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital for minor injuries, according to a press release from the Oregon State Police.

Tow trucks were dispatched to remove the 1999 Volvo Conventional Truck and manufactured home, and ODOT diverted traffic at the scene. The crash remains under investigation.

Cannon, who owns his own pilot car business, has run for Umatilla County Commissioner several times, most recently in 2014.
