SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. - A semi truck hauling two trailers jackknifed on Interstate 90 west of Snoqualmie Pass on Thursday morning, blocking at least two lanes, the Washington State Patrol reports.

State troopers and medics responded to the scene, in the eastbound lanes of I-90 about six miles west of the summit, at about 6 a.m. after receiving reports of a semi crash.

The cab of the semi was found crashed off the side of the freeway, with the two trailers jackknifed across the shoulder and two lanes. One lane remained open.

The driver of the semi sustained minor injuries.

The circumstances leading up to the crash remain under investigation. A tow truck crew is enroute to clear the wreckage from the freeway.

A state Department of Ecology crew also is responding after the semi rig was found to be leaking fuel into a nearby creek.
