Miles Of Red Dye: According to the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, a semi-truck driver left miles of soluble red dye on Interstate 205 and Interstate 84 on Saturday after the liquid cargo in the truck sprung a leak on the road, stretching from Happy Valley to Troutdale through Portland. The incident occurred between Portland and Happy Valley.

Junior Jean, who is 40 years old, told officers that he stopped to examine the leak but that his employer, which the sheriff’s office did not name in its news release, instructed him to continue driving to his destination in Troutdale. According to Jean, the dye is intended for coloring mulch, and the sheriff’s office claimed that it would wash off with water if it were used.

Officers gave Jean citations for operating a vehicle with a leaky load, criminal mischief in the third degree, and reckless driving when they observed her driving.

At around 7:30 in the evening, officers from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office responded to complaints of a truck trailer that was leaking at Northwest Marine Drive and Eastwind Drive.

The sheriff’s office claims that Jean departed Interstate 84 at Northeast Marine Drive after driving north on Interstate 205 from Southeast Sunnyside Road. She then reportedly traveled Interstate 84 east and exited there. In addition, the Oregon State Police and the Department of Transportation in Oregon responded to the incident.

The motorists who drove on the splattered roads between the hours of 6:00 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday should inspect their vehicles for stains, according to the sheriff’s office. If the dye does not come off after washing, owners of vehicles can email the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office at webmaster@msco.us with their complete name, phone number, car make and model, and a picture of the damage to their vehicle.
