The rollover crash shut down a stretch of 794 and the broadway street on-ramp for nearly five hours.

Only the semi was involved in the crash. It was carrying 40,000 pounds of paper, and spilled diesel on the ramp. Hazmat crews were called in to clean it up.

The driver suffered minor injuries. He was cited for operating without a license and failure to control a vehicle.
