Crashes on southbound I-5 block lanes near Everett

SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. — All lanes of southbound Interstate 5 were blocked north of Everett after two crashes on Monday.

All lanes reopened shortly before 9 a.m.

The Washington State Department of Transportation said the crashes were just north of Marine View Drive. Both involved multiple cars.

At first, cars involved in the crash were blocking both the right and left lanes. A WSDOT camera showed at least six cars blocking the left lane and possibly two cars blocking the right lane. One of the cars in the right lane was on its roof.

Cars were getting by in the center lane, but then all lanes were closed while the overturned car was towed away.

It is not yet known if anyone was hurt.
