Overturned FedEx truck blocks I-405 for several hours

BELLEVUE - An accident involving a FedEx truck closed down most of northbound I-405 for several hours Friday morning.

It happened at the NE 8th St overpass in Bellevue around midnight.

Washington State Patrol troopers say a FedEx semi-truck pulling two trailers overturned onto its side and was blocking the right two lanes of the interstate.

Hundreds of packages and other debris spilled out, blocking the two exit lanes to NE 4th and NE 8th streets as well.

Troopers says the semi driver may have caused another two-car accident just north of where it turned over.

The driver of the semi was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Crews moved the semi to the exit lanes so they could re-open the main interstate in time for the morning commute.  But the exit lanes will remain closed for several hours while crews clean up a small fuel spill, as well as haul away that trailer that is severely damaged.
