Semi Rollover Causing Backups on I-90, One Person Injured

I-90 Semi truck rollover accident

A semi truck rolled over lanes on I-90 this morning causing a major backup for commuters heading westbound.

Just after 8 a.m., a semi was involved in a collision with another vehicle. One person was treated by medics. The injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

Slowly, traffic is clearing through in just one lane headed westbound. It is unknown how long it will take WSDOT to clear the turned semi up right and completely clear the freeway.

More updates to come.
