The lanes of northbound Interstate 5 near the Vader and Toledo area are closed because a log truck struck the state Route 506 overpass at milepost 60.

In a social media post, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) stated there is no estimate for when the lanes will reopen. The accident is expected to cause congestion into the afternoon because there is also construction taking place on northbound I-5 at milepost 59.
