Semis tipped over near Desert Aire and near Ellensburg


There were two incidents on Thursday and Friday involving tipped-over semis blocking traffic in two separate locations.

First, a semi completely blocked Highway 24 about 11 miles east of Desert Aire for more than three-and-a-half hours late Thursday morning.

Then this morning, a semi rolled on its side on an Interstate 90 on-ramp near Ellensburg, spilling big piles of lumber. Road crews blocked the 116 on-ramp while they cleaned up the debris and removed the semi. There were no injuries in either incident.
