YAKIMA, Wash. -- A 12-car pile-up on Interstate 82 had drivers detoured onto State Route 821 Friday evening. State troopers report it happened between Ellensburg and Yakima near the Yakima Firing Center. There were a number of minor injuries.
The interstate was closed in both directions from Thrall Road to the Selah Interchange for a period of time. Investigators say ice is to blame. A number of tow trucks were dispatched to get the cars off the roadway.
