Northbound Crash

Posted on 28th November 2014 at 08:41

Few details are being made available at this time, but it appears that at least one person was injured in a multi-car crash that closed the northbound freeway north of Castle Rock for some time. Cowlitz County Deputies and Cowlitz Fire District 6 responded to the crash at milepost 57 northbound, which took place around 10:25 yesterday morning. It was eventually determined that five cars were involved, and a witness reported seeing a convertible “fly off” of the freeway, going into the tree line next to the road. All lanes of the northbound freeway were blocked, with traffic backing up past the Toutle River Rest Stop at milepost 54. At least one person was transported to the hospital, but no other details have been disclosed. The State Patrol is now investigating this crash.
