All lanes of US 2 have reopened in Monroe following a semi-truck rollover crash.

Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue reported a garbage truck crashed on US 2 west of Monroe. Photos appear to show it went off-road and tumbled into a field beside the highway.

One person was taken to the hospital for treatment.

The Washington State Department of Transportation reports traffic was backed up in both directions—eastbound lanes were briefly blocked, then reopened, and transportation officials suspect they may have to close the road again when tow crews arrive.
