Semi-Truck Flips off Coffin Road

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash-- A Semi-truck drives over the edge of Coffin Rd. off Interstate-82 and flipped over early this morning.

When Benton County Sheriff Deputies got to the accident they found the truck upside down.

The driver had to be pulled from the semi and was flown to Kennewick General Hospital. The driver went through a fence that is used to keep cattle from getting loose.

KNDU caught up with one man fixing the fence and he showed us the aftermath of the accident.

"The cab and everything was down to the motor's height. These are the tracks, evidently he got to close to the edge of the road and it pulled him right in," said Dave Satterfield.

No other cars were involved. Sheriff Deputies are still investigating the accident.
