SEATTLE, WA – Two car accidents, one on southbound I-5 and one on northbound I-5, each blocked four lanes of traffic Thursday evening, according to Washington State Department of Transportation’s Traffic division.

The northbound crash occurred in Shoreline, north of NE 175th, around 5 p.m. The southbound crash happened near Seattle’s convention center. Police and the Seattle Fire Department responded to both scenes to clear up the accidents.

One hour after the southbound accident, all lanes but one had been cleared. Traffic still moved slowly, however, and there was a three-mile backup.

As of last night, both accidents were cleared from the highway. There is no word yet of the condition of the people involved.
