Fire officials said logs from one logging truck went through the cab of another logging truck.

Two lanes of I-5 were closed, reducing traffic down to one lane causing traffic to back up for miles. It reopened mid-Thursday afternoon.

One truck driver was transported to the hospital in serious but stable condition, fire officials said.

No other injuries were reported.

The Washington State Patrol is investigating.
