A three-car crash on the Glenn Jackson bridge caused a significant backup on Interstate 205 southbound on Thursday morning.
The crash was reported just before 7 a.m. The Vancouver Fire Department, Washington State Patrol and Portland police responded.
The crash, which occurred just before the Airport Way exit, was between two trucks and a car, said Kevin Stromberg, a Vancouver Fire spokesman. Everybody was out of their vehicles and no one complained of injuries when Engine 6 arrived on scene, Stromberg said.
At first, the two right lanes of the bridge were closed. Around 7:20 a.m., police reopened one of the lanes.
Southbound traffic on I-205 was backed up to state Highway 500 by 7:45 a.m. Westbound Mill Plain Boulevard and SR-500 were also backed up before on-ramps to I-205, according to Washington State Department of Transportation traffic cameras.
Everything appeared to be back to normal around 8:20 a.m.
