Rollover Semi Closes I-82 Off Ramp in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - A semi rollover is causing major problems on the eastbound Interstate 82 off ramp to Interstate 182.

A double trailer semi swerved and rolled over as it was exiting the freeway just before 4:00am.

The trailers were carrying frozen food and one trailer rolled down the hill near the off ramp, the other is blocking traffic.  The driver suffered minor injuries and was able to walk away from the crash.

Fifteen semi trucks have been stuck on that off ramp not able to get through.  Washington State Patrol says the off ramp will stay closed until the mess is cleaned up.  Commuters are being detoured to the Badger Road exit near milepost 109.
