A truck hauling a large RV trailer crashed and blocked one lane of eastbound Interstate 90 Thursday near milepost 96, about 10 miles west of Ellensburg.
Officials on scene believe a Ford pickup truck was traveling too fast for the weight it was hauling, which caused the trailer to turn and flip, sending the truck onto the jersey barrier.
“A lot of time if you come down a hill and you’re not experienced in pulling a travel trailer, what I like to say is the tail wags the dogs, and it will pull over,” said Washington State Patrol trooper and spokesman John Bryant. “I’m betting speed was probably a factor.”
No other vehicles were involved.
