KING COUNTY, WA — One person was injured Wednesday morning when a tractor trailer collided with a freeway barrier on Interstate 5 in Tukwila’s Foster area, reports KOMO News.

The accident took place on the northbound interstate along the curve of the Duwamish River near State Route 599 at approximately 9:00 a.m.

No details have been released on the events leading up to the crash, but no other vehicles were involved.

Photos captured at the scene show the big rig at rest at an angle across multiple lanes. Significant damage can be seen on the fender and hood area of the semi.

Washington State Patrol confirmed one person sustained minor injuries.

A tow truck was en route to the scene, and long delays were anticipated as only one right lane remained open to traffic.
