The accident impacted the westbound lanes just west of the SR-167 interchange and approaching southeast Federal Way. It was first reported by WSDOT at 8:10 a.m.
Officials initially indicated the center lane was blocked, but by 8:40 a.m., 30 minutes later, two right lanes were also closed. Commuters were warned of delays in the area as emergency vehicles arrived on the scene.
This is not very spooky…this is more trick than treat!
