A travel trailer overturned on the East Fork Lewis River bridge near Woodland Saturday after the driver of an SUV who was towing the trailer lost control, struck both sides of the bridge and lost the trailer to its side.

Traffic in the area was backed up several miles following the about 1 p.m. crash while crews worked to clear the wreck. There were no injuries reported.

Pavel V. Zubenskiy, 37, was towing a trailer behind a Cadillac Escalade, which incurred $10,000 in damage. The 2006 Sprinter trailer was totaled, according to a bulletin issued by the Washington State Patrol.

Zubenskiy was charged with failing to maintain control of a trailer, the bulletin said.

All lanes in the area were cleared by 1:45 p.m.
