Two Collisions on SR-167 Caused a 5 Mile Backup for Morning Commuters
This morning there were two accidents on SR 167 heading northbound that caused miles of backups, heading into Renton.
The first accident occurred around 5 am this morning in Kent. A car ended up in trees.
Traffic began as drivers slowed due to distraction from the flashing lights.
Just a few minutes, another collision on SR 167 occurred right before the I-405 ramp. The accident blocked the center lane resulting in a sudden backup.
The vehicles were quickly moved to the side but the backup reached about five miles during the morning commute.
