One person has died in a collision between two semis on I-90 in Lincoln County. It happened around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.
According to Washington State Patrol, the vehicles involved in the crash were driving too fast for conditions when one vehicle lost control and jack knifed, blocking all lanes of I-90. The second vehicle involved was unable to stop, striking the vehicle.
Both vehicles came to rest blocking both a lane and shoulder.
The crash scene is currently blocking both westbound lanes of I-90 at milepost 247, 5 miles east of Sprague.
Avoid the area if you can this morning. If you have to use I-90 through the area, WSDOT says to expect moderate to long delays.
