BURLINGTON, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State Patrol says a patrol car was hit after the trooper stopped Tuesday morning to investigate multiple crashes on an icy stretch of Interstate 5 north of Burlington.
Trooper Mark Francis says the trooper was taken to a hospital to be checked out for soreness.
Francis says the interstate was covered with a sheet of ice that caused four crashes at once near Bow Hill.
