TACOMA, WA — Authorities were called to a wreck last Thursday evening, July 20, that closed multiple lanes on Interstate 10 in downtown Tacoma, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.

The collision took place on the southbound lanes approaching Exit 133 to East McKinley Way, near the Tacoma Dome. It was first recorded by WSDOT at 8:05 p.m.

While the circumstances of the event remain unclear, all southbound traffic was forced to get by through the right lane as Tacoma Police conducted an investigation.

Footage captured at the scene shows part of a traffic backup that ultimately extended into King County. At least one fire engine could be seen responding.

By 9:51 p.m., more than 1.5 hours later, the scene had been cleared from the roadway and all lanes were announced reopened.

Authorities have not confirmed any major injuries following the event.
