Dump truck rollover on I-5 in Tukwila causes delays for Tuesday evening commute

The collision occurred on the ramp from southbound I-5 to northbound I-405 in Tukwila.

TUKWILA, Wash. — A dump truck rollover on southbound I-5 in Tukwila snarled traffic just as the evening commute was getting underway, Tuesday. 

The collision occurred on the ramp from southbound I-5 to northbound I-405, according to Washington State Patrol Trooper Rick Johnson. Two left lanes on southbound I-5 were blocked. 

All lanes have since reopened.

The truck was carrying gravel and dirt, which spilled onto the roadway, Johnson said. The driver sustained minor injuries, Johnson said. 

State troopers and Tukwila firefighters were working to shovel the debris out of the freeway so more lanes could reopen, but Johnson said drivers should expect delays.
