Police closed the tunnel from Eastbound 526 to Northbound I-5

Sunshine in driver’s eyes seemed to be the cause of 3 separate multiple car crashes that shut the tunnel from Eastbound 526 to Northbound I-5 around 7:30 this morning.

In addition a motorcycle crash shut down Westbound 526 in about the same spot, just west of I-5. There were no major injuries but traffic was backed up as Everett Police had to get 5 different tow trucks to 3 different scenes.

Broadway, Casino Road and other alternative routes to and from Boeing all backed up quickly.

    The sun ain’t going away for a long time, so these people better invent some kind of miraculous device to keep the sun out of their eyes.
