The driver of a semi that rolled and driver of a car involved in a crash on southbound I-5 at Pacific were both taken to the hospital this morning with what are believed to be non life-threatening injuries.

The crash happened around 6 AM and I-5 and the Hewitt Avenue Trestle both quickly backed up.

Pacific was also heavy as commuters looked for alternate routes as that I-5 on ramp was blocked.

The State Patrol says it will take some time to investigate the cause and clear the scene.
