Semi Crash–

Posted on 29th March 2010 at 07:54

A truck driver from Vancouver was cited after a crash reported Friday afternoon on I-5 in Kelso. State Troopers say James Dart, 60, of Vancouver was southbound shortly after 1 pm on Friday, driving in the center lane. Near Allen Street, he lost control of the tractor-trailer, swerving into the median and hitting the cable barrier. The truck jack-knifed, partly blocking the left lane of the freeway. They also say that about 40 gallons of diesel fuel spilled from the truck, but the load did not spill. Troopers blame the crash on excessive speed, and Dart was cited for driving with his wheels off the roadway.
