The collision happened around 7 a.m. today just north of S Spokane Street. Footage taken from a nearby traffic camera showed multiple emergency vehicles on the scene, but a traffic sign obscured the crash scene itself.
By the time the wreck was removed from the roadway at 7:21 a.m., traffic had already backed up about four miles.
