MOSES LAKE — A semi that spilled onto its side around 5:45 p.m. Tuesday blocked both lanes of traffic on westbound I-90 near milepost 164.

The driver was arrested for DUI, according to a Washington State Patrol official. There were no reported injuries, despite significant damage to the vehicle. The official was unable to provide any further details at the time.

Westbound traffic on I-90 was detoured at exit 169, the last exit before the scene, onto North Frontage Road Northeast. Eastbound lanes remained open. The closure stretched into the night as law enforcement inspected the scene and the truck was cleared off the road.
