Military-vehicle accidents back up traffic around Puget Sound

humveeSEATTLE — Traffic on Interstate 5 and State Route 520 was backed up Sunday afternoon following multiple accidents involving military vehicles.

According to Washington State Patrol Trooper Julie Judson, a convoy of Canadian military vehicles was travelling northbound on I-5 at 1 p.m. near Boeing Field when a Mercedes SUV and a different vehicle crashed into each other.  One vehicle rolled over, but no one was seriously injured in the accident. The carpool lane northbound on I-5 was backed up for at least an hour.

The incident followed a 12:50 p.m. accident on State Route 520 near Bellevue involving a 5-ton Washington National Guard vehicle. Some equipment failure caused the vehicle to crash into the median. Three soldiers on board were not hurt, but the accident stalled traffic for some time.

    One thing I’ve noticed is there are plenty of myths regarding the finance institutions intentions if talking about property foreclosures. One fantasy in particular is the fact the bank prefers to have your house. The lending company wants your dollars, not your house. They want the amount of money they loaned you together with interest. Staying away from the bank will undoubtedly draw any foreclosed realization. Thanks for your article.

    this article is slightly incorrect, there was no other vehicle involved in the accident. The civilian vehicle pulled over on the side was a witness. CF vehicle lost a wheel and spun out. Thankfully it didn't hit any other vehicles.
