Excavator on semi hits, damages overpass above I-5 in Fife

Crews are inspecting an overpass above I-5 in Fife Thursday after it was hit and damaged by an excavator on a semi.

The incident happened on the northbound lanes of I-5 at 54th Avenue East at about 9:30 a.m.

The lanes have since been reopened. 

The 54th Avenue East overpass was shut down.  Northbound I-5 was reduced to two left lanes for crews to inspect the damage.

Trooper Robert Reyer said the semi truck driver did not stay at the scene and continued northbound on I-5. The semi was located and stopped on I-5 at I-405 in King County.
