Posted:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- A truck driver was hospitalized Monday morning after rolling his semi-truck on a ramp near the intersection of Interstate 82 and Interstate 182.

Mark McMurray, 50, was taken to the hospital with head and back injuries, but troopers said they did not appear to be life threatening. They said McMurray was going to fast for the ramp, which has a posted speed limit of 35 miles per hour.

A tow truck driver, hired to move the rig, estimated it would take three tow trucks seven hours to move it.
