SHORELINE, Wash. -- Police say a hit-and-run driver hit several cars Tuesday morning, snarling traffic on Interstate 5 in Shoreline.

At least three cars and one semi were involved between 145th and 175th street in the northbound lanes of I-5.

According to the Washington State Patrol, a driver tried to take off after hitting other cars before 3:00 a.m. Troopers ultimately took the driver into custody and they suspect the driver was impaired.

Troopers said there were multiple injuries.

I-5 was back open around 5:30 a.m., but delays were expected through the morning commute.

Q13 News traffic expert Adam Gehrke said southbound traffic on I-5 was also jammed. Watch Q13 News This Morning through 10 a.m. for the best way to avoid traffic.
