KING COUNTY, WA — A collision early Monday evening blocked several lanes on Interstate 5, causing a traffic backup near south Federal Way, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The crash impacted the northbound interstate near Exit 142A to State Route 18 and was first reported by the WSDOT at 5:20 p.m.

Only the right lane was initially blocked, but by 5:29 p.m., only the left general purpose lane and the HOV lane were left open.

Commuters coming from Tacoma were advised to find alternate routes.

At 5:46 p.m., a 2.5-mile backup had formed in the area as medics and crews responded to the scene.

By 8:51 p.m., more than three hours after the first report, the scene had cleared from the roadway and all lanes were reopened to traffic.

No injuries have been confirmed as of this writing.
