SEATTLE, WA — Multiple vehicles appear to have been involved in a crash late Wednesday morning on Interstate 90 in Seattle’s Judkins Park neighborhood, reports the Washington State Department of Transportation.
The accident impacted the westbound lanes of I-90 past Mount Baker Tunnel and just east of Rainier Avenue South (Exit 3B). It was first recorded by WSDOT at 11:20 a.m.
