The crash had blocked the 4th Avenue exit ramp to eastbound Interstate 90 and both directions of Interstate 5. The ramp reopened by 1 p.m., about 2 1/2 hours after the accident.

The 34-year-old semi truck driver sustained minor injuries and was taken away in an ambulance.

A witness told investigators that the semi truck appeared to be going too fast.
