Lumber spill on I-17 snarls traffic

Posted: Updated:

A rollover crash involving a semi-truck and a large amount of lumber which spilled on the roadway caused a traffic backup on Interstate 17 near Dixileta Wednesday morning.

The semi overturned about 6 a.m., spilling lumber in the busy lanes of traffic.

The truck and lumber blocked the right three lanes of traffic on I-17, and the ramp from Loop 303 to southbound I-17 were closed.

By 9 a.m., the Loop 303 ramp was reopened.

The driver of the semi suffered only minor injuries. No one else was hurt.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, but DPS says the driver may have been speeding.
