TACOMA, WA – One person is dead following a multi-vehicle collision on I-5 in Tacoma on Friday night, according to KOMO News.
The crash occurred on southbound I-5, near 84th Street, just before 5 p.m., when multiple vehicles crashed, including an 18-wheeler that jackknifed.
The truck reportedly swerved to avoid colliding with slowed traffic before it crashed.
A driver died at the scene despite the efforts of bystanders to help them.
Drivers were told to expect major delays, as the truck was blocking all lanes of interstate traffic.
The identity of the victim was not immediately released.
