Vantage Tractor Trailer Accident Results In Fire

An accident involving a semi trailer Sunday on I-90 near Vantage closed the span for several hours.

Police say the semi driven by Arthur Butler of Lakewood was crossing the Vantage Bridge westbound when he lost control causing the double-trailer rig to collide with the jersey barrier resulting in the fuel tank starting on fire.

The wreckage blocked both lanes until around noon.

Butler was not hurt and the State Patrol says he will be cited for speed too fast for conditions.
