SEATTLE -- A semi truck tumbled off Interstate 5 at Ravenna Monday, crashing onto the on-ramp below. There are reportedly people injured but their conditions are not known at this time.
The crash happened around 11:00 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-5 as the semi truck and a black Honda were approaching the Ravenna Boulevard exit.
According to Washington State Patrol troopers, the Honda and semi truck collided for an unknown reason.
The crash sent the car into the barrier on the right side of the freeway, and caused the semi truck to drive over the barrier on the left side of the freeway. The truck crashed down onto the Ravenna on-ramp below, landing upside down.
All but one lane of I-5 southbound has reopened, but the on-ramp from Ravenna to I-5 southbound remains blocked. The I-5 Express Lanes will remain southbound and open until further notice.
A long line of backed-up traffic developed as soon as the crash happened. It is now slowly moving past the crash site.
The semi truck was reportedly transporting eggs.
Again, the number of victims injured or extent of injuries is not known at this time.
More details will be posted as they develop.
