A semi-truck driver on Monday took a corner too fast near Tacoma and overturned his rig, closing a section of Pioneer Way East for more than four hours.
The accident happened about 10:30 a.m. near Gay Road East.
The driver suffered minor injuries. The truck toppled onto its side with the windshield broken out.
A road crew shut Pioneer Way East between Waller Road and Gay Road East so equipment could be brought in to stand the truck upright.
It remained closed until 5 p.m.
