SEATTLE, WA – A crash on southbound I-5 near SR-104 has been affecting traffic in the area since shortly before 7 a.m. today.
And after briefly stopping traffic, WSP has cleared these vehicles to the right shoulder. Those flashing lights could still slow folks down as they head on SB I-5 toward Shoreline. pic.twitter.com/fE6O37iKEW
