Northbound I-5 reopened near Mountlake Terrace after fatal crash

Northbound I-5 has reoepened near Mountlake Terrace following a fatal crash.

Washington State Patrol is investigating the crash, and said a truck carrying a mattress lost it on I-5 near 220th Street SW around 6:35 a.m. The car reportedly pulled over, but then drove off.

Authorities have not specified exactly what happened, but the obstruction in the road caused a semi-truck to crash into a car. At least one person was killed in the crash.

The road was closed for several hours while troopers investigated, with traffic diverted to 220th Street Southwest.

WSP believes the suspect vehicle may be a small, older, dark-colored pickup truck with wood-sided bed racks, carrying miscellaneous household items. Anyone with information on the suspect or truck is urged to call WSP at (360) 654-1204.
