On Monday, January 8, 2024, the southbound I-5 was closed after a multi-vehicle collision involving a semi-truck. The Washington State Department of Transportation interactive map indicated that southbound traffic was backed up from Ohio Street to Slater Road.
State Patrol Officer Kelsey Harding said minor injuries were reported as a result of the collision. Harding also explained the long delay was due to the semi-truck taking longer to tow compared to cars.
