A non-injury crash slowed traffic on Interstate 5 Tuesday afternoon south of Northeast 179th Street.

An SUV pulling a trailer flipped in the southbound lanes around 3 p.m., according to emergency traffic monitored at The Columbian.

It appears the accident is a non-injury but the trailer, which is resting on its side, is blocking the right lane of traffic, said Dawn Johnson, spokeswoman for Fire District 6.

State patrol and WSDOT units are en route.
