At one point, the backup stretched all the way to Northgate.
The Washington State Patrol said recovery crews were able to pull an unstable truck and trailer carrying computer supplies down an embankment after it crashed around 10 a.m.
Troopers reported the truck hit a car before rolling down the embankment.
Kyle Moore, spokesperson for the Seattle Fire Department, said the driver told investigators he was trying to avoid another vehicle and swerved to the left.
Four people were injured, including a one-year-old. A 35-year-old male and 34-year-old female experienced minor injuries. The 39-year-old truck driver was able to "self-extricate" and denied transport to a hospital, according to the SFD.
WSDOT recommends using alternate routes to avoid I-5. Consider using I-405 or SR 99 to bypass Seattle.
