CDAPRESS.COM -  Rocks in the westbound lanes of Interstate 90 led to a four-car pileup shortly before noon on Wednesday.

Witnesses described some of the rocks as small boulders -three and half feet wide and two feet tall - and said one caused a Chevy truck to go airborne after hitting it near milepost 26 on Fourth of July Pass.

Witnesses suspect the rocks fell from the mountainside onto the road.

"I caught it out of the corner of my eye, this truck jumping up and then 'kaboom,'" said Brad Hash, who was driving next to the red SSR truck with an Oregon license plate that hit the rock in the left lane and crashed into Hash's Nissan. "I was trying to maintain control but he's taking us right off the road."

The two cars slid about 100 feet side-by-side before crashing off the north shoulder together.
