SEATTLE -- A dump truck crashed into a SR-520 offramp, leaving part of the cab teetering over the edge of the roadway.

The driver tells KOMO News an SUV cut off his truck on the Montlake eastbound exit, and the truck lost control and smashed into the guardrail.

The impact from the crash carried the cab of the truck about halfway over the raised roadway, leaving its left-side tires dangling over the edge.

Luckily the truck driver wasn't hurt, troopers said.

But the mess blocked the eastbound offramp to Montlake for nearly two hours.
