A semi-truck rolled over on southbound I-5 in Bellingham, sending debris all over the roadway early Tuesday morning, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The crash was first reported at 3:40 a.m., and images from the scene show the truck on its side near Sunset Drive with what appeared to be drywall scattered across the road.

A detour was set up along city streets going from James Street to Iowa Street to Ohio Street and then back onto I-5.
