TACOMA, Wash. – Three lanes of southbound I-5 were closed for about two-and-a-half hours Friday morning after a truck rolled over during the morning commute.

The crash happened near the Tacoma Dome at around 6:40 a.m., and was finally cleaned up at around 9:15 a.m.

There were no injuries, the Washington State Patrol said, but the truck was leaking fuel.


By 7:50 a.m., a tow truck had arrived and was attempting to right the truck, though three lanes remained block. At 8:05 a.m., the truck was upright.
