Expect delays on westbound Interstate 90 near Issaquah due to a multivehicle crash at 133rd Avenue Southeast.

The state Department of Transportation said a load spilled from a logging truck. The crash encompassed other vehicles as well.

Bellevue Fire Department and Washington State Patrol crews responded to the scene. The extent of the motorists’ injuries is unknown.

The traffic backup stretched from 150th Avenue Southeast in Bellevue to state Route 900 in Issaquah — about five miles of roadway — just after 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Eastbound traffic on the interstate is unaffected.

    Thank you so much for this capture and for the related tweet. I love getting Iss Press Twitter as it keeps me updated on everything Issaquah: breaking story or more in-depth news. I had two people call me from the traffic jam back-up from this accident, with warnings about the delays in traffic if I were heading to Bellevue this morn. I let them know I knew about this already . . . because the Press tweeted it . . . and I encourage them to follow the Press on Twitter!
