The crash happened on southbound I-405 at 30th at about 6:45 a.m. Saturday.

When troopers arrived, both vehicles were off the highway and on the slanted concrete surface under the bridge.

Part of the top and side of the semi’s trailer appeared to have been sheered off by the overpass when the truck veered off the road.

Though the vehicles were off the highway, troopers were concerned that they could tip over, so the right two lanes were closed for several hours while the vehicles were removed and the bridge was inspected for damage.

No injuries were reported.

The lanes reopened around 10 a.m.
