EVERETT — No one was seriously injured in a rollover collision that backed up traffic on southbound I-5 for hours Tuesday morning.

The crash was reported about 9:45 a.m., said trooper Mark Francis with the Washington State Patrol.

A smaller vehicle apparently cut off a 16,000-pound converted bread truck, he said.

The truck flipped over and leaked a small amount of chemicals. Local hazardous material teams responded to help with cleanup.

Exits to Highways 526 and 527 were blocked for some time, according to transportation officials.
