Truck Driver Crashes in Pasco, Spills Potatoes On Roadway

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - A truck driver is facing several citations after tipping his truck and spilling potatoes all over the I-182 westbound off ramp at 4th Avenue.

Washington State Patrol officers say on Thursday the 47-year-old driver was going too fast on the ramp and tipped over around 1:30 p.m. Paramedics took him to Lourdes Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers say the driver will be cited for driving too fast and for having bad brakes.

Both of the off and on ramp are closed which crews clear the roadway. They hope to reopen the on-ramp by 3:30 p.m. They don't know when they'll reopen the off-ramp.
