The backup stretched for about 4 miles

The southbound lanes of I-5 in Everett this morning were blocked after an accident involving a van and two other vehicles. The crash happened at about 6:15 AM. The van ended up on the left side of the freeway with the other vehicles on the right at the exit to the Boeing Freeway.

The van caught fire and first responders were unable to put it out. Everett Fire crews were called and while dealing with the van fire were advised that there were injuries to one person in the cars on the right side of the freeway.

That injured person was taken off the freeway in a fire truck and transported by ambulance to Providence Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash caused about a four mile backup on I-5 and quickly clogged southbound Broadway and Colby through Everett. The State Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash.
