VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) -- The Washington State Patrol says a driver towing a 30-foot boat on Interstate 5 in Vancouver lost control and crashed through a concrete median barrier, temporarily disrupting traffic in both directions.
A dispatcher told The Columbian that traffic was once again moving both northbound and southbound shortly before 9 p.m. Thursday.
The northbound driver lost control at about 7 p.m., smashing through the median into southbound lanes.
The collision left debris in the southbound lanes, blocking traffic in both directions. Tow trucks were called to clear the roadway.
