FEDERAL WAY, Wash. (AP) -- The driver of a semi-truck hauling mail that crashed into construction work on Interstate 5 at Federal Way was jailed for investigation of driving under the influence.

King County Jail records showed the 47-year-old Des Moines woman was held Tuesday on $500 bail.

The Washington State Patrol says her truck was southbound Monday night at the Highway 18 interchange when it hit four Transportation Department trucks as workers were putting out barrels.

One of the DOT drivers was taken to a hospital.
