EVERETT, Wash. -- A crash of a concrete mixer truck made the southbound commute into Everett morning quite a mess, both literally and figuratively.

The truck blew a tire and rolled over in the southbound lanes of I-5 near Dagmar's, said Trooper Keith Leary with the Washington State Patrol.

No one was hurt in the crash, but all lanes were blocked for a while during the morning commute for the cleanup, causing a backup that extended at least seven miles at the peak.

The roadway reopened for all lanes by late morning.
