Traffic in Tukwila was bottle-necked Thursday morning when a semi truck overturned during the commute.
Shortly before 8 a.m. a semi truck flipped on its side on southbound I-5 near SR 599 in Tukwila.
The Washington State Patrol reports there were no injuries, but crews responded to a fire that started at the scene of the accident.
The two right lanes of SB I-5 were blocked, as well as the ramp from SR 599 to SB I-5 while the truck was being up-righted and the guard rail was being repaired. The roadway and ramp have reopened.
Drivers may have experienced a one mile back-up while traveling through the area.
The semi truck was loaded with paper products, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation. The truck weighs about 95,000 pounds.
