Hay Truck Accident Stops Traffic on I-182

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.- A hay spill brings traffic down to one lane for a time on I-182 in Pasco.

The State Patrol says the dual rear-wheels fell off a tow-truck and hit the haytruck, sending it into the median.

The hay fell off into the roadway, amazingly no one was hurt in the accident.

"That's the best scenario we could have.  I don't mind that traffic has to slow down as long as no body's hurt," said Sgt. Zach Elmore with Washington State Patrol.

Troopers say the accident would have been much worse had the truck crossed the median or rolled.
