I-90 Reopened After 38-Car Collision Near Kittitas
Eastbound I-90 was closed near Kittitas for over 10 hours as crews worked to clear a 38-vehicle collision Wednesday.
At 5:14 a.m., 38 vehicles were driving eastbound I-90 in foggy and icy weather, when around MP 126, 57-year-old Yakima driver Jose Palacios lost traction and subsequently blocked all eastbound lanes.
As a result of the blockage, several large collisions followed this initial incident.
Multiple minor injuries were sustained.
Palacios was later cited for driving too fast for current road conditions.
Around 3:30 p.m., eastbound I-90 was reopened.
