Two people were injured – one critically – when a semi-truck crashed and caught fire on eastbound SR 18 near SR 167 on Monday afternoon, May 2, 2022.

Dramatic footage shared by South King Fire showed firefighters extinguishing the fire.

One patient was rescued by a couple of bystanders who pulled him from the flames.

Here’s what Troopers said happened:

    • Vehicle one (the semi-truck) was traveling eastbound on SR 18 exiting to northbound SR 167 in lane one of one.
    • Vehicle one failed to negotiate the curve, causing its load to shift.
    • Vehicle one rolled onto its side and became engulfed in flames.
    • Eastbound SR 18 to SR 167 was blocked.
