Lumber truck rolls near I-205 bridge


An overturned lumber truck slowed southbound traffic on the Glenn Jackson Bridge Friday afternoon.

The crash was reported just after 1 p.m. on the ramp from state Highway 14 to Interstate 205 south, according to emergency dispatch logs.

The truck rolled into the gore point, said Trooper Will Finn, spokesman for the Washington State Patrol.

The left lane of the ramp was closed while crews cleaned up lumber and the right lane of I-205 south was temporarily closed while emergency crews responded, Finn said.

The driver had minor injuries, Finn said.
