Accident on I-5 jammed traffic through Shoreline

Thursday, June 28, 2018

The accident was cleared to the side by the time I got this traffic camera shot. I drove by the scene going southbound on I-5 around 12:15pm on Wednesday.

It looked like three cars collided just before the 195th pedestrian bridge. They were in the left lane on northbound I-5. A medic van and a Shoreline fire truck were on the scene and the occupants of some of the vehicles were standing on the freeway lanes.

It didn't appear there were serious injuries. Neither Shoreline Fire or WSP commented on the accident - business as usual.

The northbound traffic was backed up to 130th NE and more cars were getting caught in the back of the pack.

Less than 30 minutes later the damaged cars were off to the side and the traffic, while thick, was flowing freely.

Just another day on the the freeway.

P.S. WSP did report on another accident on northbound I-5. Three car collision at N 117th at Northgate about a half hour before this one.
