By Sydney Brown The Spokesman-Review

No one was injured when several cars collided going eastbound on Interstate 90 and caused a multi-vehicle pileup Tuesday afternoon, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The Washington State Patrol cleared the collision on the Freya and Thor exits of I-90 and will investigate the cause of the crash, according to WSP Trooper Jeff Sevigney. 

The Washington State Department of Transportation reported the crash on Twitter at 3:32 p.m.

The crash took the far left lane of the interstate and caused major delays as cars merged into the two free lanes. The crash took about an hour and a half to clear, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation.
