Chain Reaction Semi-Truck Accident near Lincoln and Division Streets
SPOKANE, WA (April 25, 2018) – A semi-truck crash on Interstate 90 blocked all the eastbound lanes and one westbound lane of the highway, early Wednesday morning.

In a statement given by Jim Martin Trucking LLC from Hayden, Idaho, the driver claimed that a silver Chevrolet cut him off, resulting in the semi-truck losing control and the chain reaction accident that followed.
Multiple people were reportedly hospitalized, but the Washington State Troopers confirmed that none of the people involved were seriously injured.
Affected areas were closed down to clear the remnants of the crash and tow the damaged vehicles. As of 3:22 PM on the same day, all blocked lanes were reopened to the public. Authorities have not released additional information to the public at this time.
