A truck that hit a guardrail on northbound Interstate 5 and slid 120 feet before slamming into a pole caused a five-mile backup Wednesday near state Route 512 in Lakewood.

The accident happened about 8:30 a.m. No major injuries were reported.

The two left lanes of northbound I-5 were blocked, according to the state Department of Transportation.

Two flatbed trucks removed the pickup truck just before 10 a.m.
