2 semi trucks go down embankment on SB I-5 near Woodland, causing delays

Drivers on southbound I-5 near Woodland experienced "significant delays" after two semi-trucks crashed down an embankment, according to Washington State Patrol.

It's unclear what caused the trucks to go off an embankment. Troopers said at least one loaded trailer became detached and was floating in a river, and one truck was on fire. 

As of 6 p.m., one semi was lifted out of the embankment and taken away. However, the other is still on its side in the water and is estimated to remain there for several hours. 

WSP first reported the crash around 2 p.m. on Tuesday
