CHELAN CO., Wash. — Stevens Pass is closed in both directions due to delays clearing out car crashes.

The closure stretches from Scenic to Cold Corner/Leavenworth area.

According to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), there were several crashes that caused backups on the pass Sunday morning. They were eventually able to get traffic moving shortly after, but then had to stop again so road crews could clear off the snow.

Now, they are closing the pass so first responders can get to all of the crashes, and crews can finish clearing the roads.

There is no estimated time for the pass to reopen.
