WSP: Semi driver who caused crash on Vantage Bridge was speeding

SPOKANE, Wash. - The semi-truck driver who caused a crash on I-90 along the Vantage Bridge Thursday has been charged with speeding, according to the Washington State Patrol. 

WSP troopers said Vladimir Kholyusev, 73, was going too fast when he rolled the semi. 

Kholyusev had minor injuries, but refused treatment at the scene. He had to be extricated through the windshield because he was trapped in the cab of his rig. 

The semi was hauling apples when it flipped around 3:30 p.m. The collision sent the tailer's contents all over the roadway in both directions and forced road closures for nearly eight hours. The road was reopened around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night. 

The crash also caused 50 gallons of fuel to spill onto the road.
