Semi tips over on Highway 99, spills 100 gallons of diesel

The on-ramp from northbound Highway 99 to southbound Highway 525 will be closed for clean up.

EVERETT — A semi truck tipped over and spilled 100 gallons of diesel Friday, on a Highway 99 exit to Highway 525.

No one was injured in the crash on the southbound on-ramp around 5 p.m. south of Everett.

Crews contained the spill, but the ramp was expected to be closed into the evening as cleanup continued, Washington State Patrol trooper Heather Axtman said.

“A 100-gallon spill is quite significant,” she said.

The cause of the crash was still under investigation.
