BONNEVILLE, Washington - A semi-truck carrying grain crashed on Route 14 in Washington this morning.

It was near milepost 26 near Bonneville when 40-year old Guillermo Espinoza turned left on the road before the truck flipped over.

Crews useed a backhoe to hold onto the cables and then use a semi-truck that put an anchor down on the ground to weight itself in order to move the truck back over.

The driver did not suffered any injuries and the grain in the truck has already been cleaned up off the road.

Washington State Police said the driver was driving too fast in snowy conditions when he drifted into the west-bound lane and tried to correct before the truck tipped. The driver will be charged with driving too fast for the conditions.
