Log truck crash makes big mess on I-5 near Grand Mound

GRAND MOUND, Wash. -- Those trying to get south out of Thurston County on I-5 had quite the challenge Tuesday morning after a log truck overturned on the freeway and spilled its load.

Trooper Guy Gill said the crash happened around 10:30 just south of Grand Mound and logs rolled across all lanes.

There were only minor injuries, Gill said, adding the southbound freeway was blocked for some time. Traffic had been diverted off at Exit 88/U.S. 12 Highway until they opened one lane just after noon.

There is no word yet what caused the accident.
