EASTON, Wash. -- WSDOT crews spent much of Friday cleaning up a huge mess on I-90 at Snoqualmie Pass after a crash involving two semi trucks resulted in spilled corn cobs.

The crash happened in the westbound lanes just after 4 a.m. near Easton, says Trooper Brian Moore with the Washington State Patrol.

Photos from the scene shows one semi truck on its side and hundreds to thousands of corn cobs strewn across the freeway.

There were only minor injuries in the crash, but the cleanup took several hours, restricting traffic to one lane for much of the day.

There is no word yet what triggered the crash. But more crashes occurred in the backups, further snarling traffic, according to the State Patrol:

Troopers reopened all lanes of traffic around 11 a.m., but one of the damaged semis that crashed off the road was to remain there until Saturday morning.
