Commuters found a small backup Monday morning on I-80 along the Yolo Causeway after a fire engine ran off the roadway and crashed into a ditch.  

The CHP says the vehicle may have blown a tire in the eastbound lanes, just east of Mace Boulevard.  

The two right lanes were closed for a short time, but the spectacle of the accident caused continued backups all the way through Davis even after the lanes were cleared before 9 a.m.

The driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
