Driver with minor injuries after rolling semi on freeway ramp.

Tacoma, WA: This morning around 10 a.m., emergency crews responded to reports of a semi-truck rollover at SB SR 509 ramp to SB I-705.

When personnel from WSDOT, State Patrol, and Fire Department arrived, they found a semi with a shipping container on its side.

The driver of the truck, with some help, was able to remove himself from the cab of the truck and only suffered from minor injuries.

Heavy duty tow trucks are on scene working to upright the truck and get the ramp open to traffic again.
