Fully loaded logging truck tips over on 405 ramp in Kirkland near Bothell, blocks several lanes | Photos
A fully loaded logging truck tipped over on an Interstate 405 ramp in Kirkland Wednesday morning and has blocked several lanes of traffic, said Washington State Patrol officials.
The incident happened at 9:46 a.m. on northbound I-405 at Northeast 160 Street in Kirkland, near Bothell.
A Kenworth Tractor’s load shifted, pushed a barrier and logs rolled into the right lane. A 63-year-old Lake Tapps driver struck one of the logs and was transported to EvergreenHealth Medical Center with injuries, according to a State Patrol report.
The 43-year-old Lynnwood driver of the truck was also injured and transported to EvergreenHealth.
State Patrol is urging drivers to use alternate routes as the traffic backup is a couple of miles.
All lanes other than the HOV lane will remain closed for several hours as crews work to clean up the spill.
State Patrol said drugs or alcohol were not involved in the incident, which is currently under investigation.
