KENNEWICK -- Interstate 82 was blocked for about an hour Thursday outside of Kennewick after a pickup and the trailer it was hauling flipped on their sides, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The truck and trailer were westbound when they crashed around 2:40 p.m, state police said. It's unclear what caused the crash, though one of the trailer's tires did blow out at some point before or during the incident.

The crash blocked both westbound lanes near milepost 117, though traffic was getting through by driving on the highway shoulder. There were no injuries and the truck and trailer were towed away.
