A 19 year old male driver, who State Patrol believes was impaired, was driving northbound on I-5 on Saturday morning, March 24, 2018 when his vehicle left the roadway between NE 175th and NE 185th, plowed across the grass and ran into at least one tree.

The driver, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, was ejected from the car and transported to Harborview.

Traffic on I-5 was reduced to one and then two lanes as emergency vehicles lined the right lane.

The tree snapped and fell across the NE 185th overpass. No injuries have been reported, nor any damage to vehicles. However, traffic was backed up to Ballinger Way.
