Around 3:30pm a traffic collision on I-5 caused a major back up just north of 145th.

The two vehicles managed to get to the left side of the freeway, but one was partially in the HOV lane.

When Incident Response Team (IRT) crews arrived, they completely blocked the HOV lane.

After assessment, the IRT moved the vehicles to the right side of the freeway. One of the vehicles had to be pushed across six lanes.

No aid cars were on the scene.

Traffic sorted itself out again around 4pm.
