On Saturday Morning all of the northbound lanes were closed on Interstate 5 in Mount Vernon after multiple cars were involved in an accident. The accident was the result of a tractor trailer crossing the median and striking numerous vehicles that were stopped in the other lane. In total this accident resulted in twenty-eight vehicles being involved. The individuals who were riding in the first couple of vehicles the tractor trailer struck, suffered critical injuries and had to be taken to a local hospital.
Currently it is unclear what caused the tractor trailer driver to lose control of his semi-truck and cause this tragic accident, but early suspicion is that it is related to a medical condition.
