KENNEWICK, WA - The Washington State Patrol says two separate collisions snarled traffic on SR 395 over the Blue Bridge during rush hour Wednesday night.

It happened around 7 p.m. in the right north-bound lane.

Troopers say one driver had slowed down to a stop causing a slow speed a chain reaction crash that eventually involved five vehicles and one motorcycle.

Troopers took the driver of one of the vehicles to Trios Health in Kennewick to get checked out for possible whiplash.

Troopers say the driver of the motorcycle was lucky as a truck swerved out of the way to avoid hitting him.

The northbound lanes were blocked for about an hour to clear the wreckage.

Troopers are investigating.
