SEATTLE – Tacos to the rescue!

With drivers stuck for hours in traffic on I-5 on Monday, a taco truck decided to take advantage of the situation.

Tacos El Tajin opened for business close to the front of the closure on northbound I-5 while crews were cleaning up an overturned tanker carrying butane.

Customers lined up for some food to help them wait out the cleanup.

Rachel McQuade sent in a picture and video.
