Motorists steal packages from toppled FedEx truck

Police continue to look for suspects who may have been involved with the theft of packages from a FedEx truck that overturned on Interstate 5 in Washington last week.

The crash and thefts occurred Friday, June 30 near Northgate in Seattle. The tractor-trailer was slowing down for a two-car collision but went out of control, hit a barrier, and overturned spilling packages across the interstate.

Police say passing motorists stopped and took packages from the crash scene. Police say they are still looking for information concerning the thefts.
