The early morning semi crash in Tacoma is clear, but it will have lasting impacts on the Wednesday morning commute. 

Both directions of Interstate 5 near State Route 16 were blocked for a semi-trailer that crashed through the jersey barriers. The freeway reopened just after 7 a.m.

The truck was traveling southbound on I-5, according to Washington State Patrol. 

Trooper Johnna Batiste tweeted about the collision early Wednesday morning. She said the truck spilled a large amount of fuel onto the roadway. 

Vehicles traveling in the area were diverted through the collector/distributor lanes. 

The state patrol said passengers suffered minor injuries. 

Last week, a semi-trailer crashed at the same site along I-5. Both directions of the roadway were blocked or delayed for much of the morning commute.
