I-90 near Cle Elum has been an icy trouble area for drivers


It was a tangle of twisted metal and backed up traffic Thursday night and this morning on icy Interstate 90 near Cle Elum.

The Washington State Patrol did not report any serious injuries from the multiple spinouts that forced the closure of westbound lanes for more than an hour Thursday night and the eastbound lanes for almost two hours this morning.

All the accidents were in the same area near Sparks Road.

Traffic was diverted through Cle Elum during the closures.
