Semi-Truck Flips Over, Scattering Wood on Interstate in Pasco

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.--  A semi-truck carrying a huge load of wood overturns in Pasco, and the driver is arrested for DUI.

It happened around 6:30 Tuesday night as the driver was trying to merge from 395 South to I-82 West.  Troopers say the driver failed to negotiate the curve and flipped over.

Traffic was backed up as wood was scattered all over the I-82.  The driver is from Post Falls, Idaho and had only minor cuts and scrapes.  It took crews over three hours to clear the wood from the roadway.
