SELAH, WA -  A bad accident in Selah stopped traffic heading into Yakima for more than an hour Friday and troopers say it was all caused by a spilled slurpee. 

The driver of this truck says he was reaching over the seat to save his cell phone from his spilled drink when he swerved into the median. 

Another driver who witnessed the crash say the driver went right into the concrete divider. 

"He just hit it and flipped around," Benjamin Record said. "Like he bounced back and flipped around. It was pretty crazy. I mean I got in a wreck not too long ago so it brings back some memories."

There were no reported injuries in the accident and traffic is now back to normal.
