State Patrol arrests Kent man for semi rollover along I-90

Drugs, alcohol reportedly involved; nobody injured

The Washington State Patrol arrested a 39-year-old Kent man for investigation of DUI after he rolled a semi Tuesday evening along Interstate 90 near Moses Lake that blocked traffic for about five hours.

Nobody was injured in the single-vehicle crash that reportedly involved drugs or alcohol, according to a State Patrol press release.

A 2015 white Freightlinger was traveling westbound on I-90 at about 5:54 p.m. when it left the roadway to the right. The driver overcorrected and reentered the road, rolling the semi which came to rest on its side blocking both westbound lanes.

The crash was about 12 miles west of Moses Lake.

In addition to the DUI arrest, troopers cited the man for driving with wheels off the roadway.
