EUGENE, Ore. -- A rolled snowplow blocked Highway 105 westbound Sunday afternoon near it's junction with Delta Highway.

Paramedics transported the driver to the hospital; no word on the extent of injuries.

No other cars were involved in the crash that happened about two miles west of Interstate 5, officials at the scene said. 

Crash investigators are looking into what caused the snowplow to flip over while it was plowing slush from the roadway.

Crews cleared the plow from the roadway at around 3 p.m.

Westbound traffic was diverted to Delta Hwy. northbound. Eastbound traffic was still able to navigate around emergency responders at the scene.
