An early afternoon accident clogged traffic Wednesday on the northbound lanes of the Interstate 5 Bridge.

Portland Fire & Rescue and the Vancouver Fire Department responded to a crash, which appeared to be on the northbound lanes of I-5.

The accident involved multiple cars and multiple patients, said Portland Fire & Rescue spokesman Tommy Schroeder.

Four people were taken to hospitals with injuries believed not life-threatening; a fifth suffered minor abrasions, Schroeder said.

Names and conditions of the patients were not available.
