Semi Truck Rolls Over

RICHLAND, Wash. - Authorities said a semi truck lost control while getting off a ramp and tipped over.

The driver suffered minor injuries to his arm and was taken to an area hospital.  It happened at the I-182, 82 eastbound interchange at around 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon.

The Richland Fire Department said a number of trucks have flipped on the ramp in the past few years.

A witness was headed to Pasco with his wife and said people passing by got out of their cars to help and said a doctor treated the driver while waiting for help to arrive.

Witness Bob Miller said, "A lot of people stopped and lent a hand and it was really nice to see."

Richland Firefighters and Washington State Patrol responded to the accident.
