The accident, located near North Killingsworth Street, closed I-5 down to one lane for approximately one hour. Traffic was backed up all the way to downtown and south down to the Terwilliger Curves.

As of 4:45 p.m. all the lanes were cleared and the wreckage of the vehicle had been moved over to the side of the highway.
