SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WA — Troopers responded to the scene of a major accident Saturday afternoon on U.S. Highway 2 in Gold Bar, reports Washington State Patrol.

According to Trooper Rocky Oliphant, a driver ran their car off the roadway and into right-shoulder barrier shortly before 12:14 p.m.

The car then entered the oncoming lane, where it struck a semi-truck head-on, causing the car to erupt into flames and burn for a short time.

Authorities said a total of three vehicles were ultimately impacted by the collision, though no serious injuries to its occupants were reported.

The event left the road completely blocked for at least three hours as emergency crews worked to clear the wreckage and spilled fluids from the roadway.

Shortly after 3;30 p.m., the road was reopened to traffic.
