Seattle commuters saw long delays after a crash completely shut down the Aurora Bridge late Friday afternoon. Seattle Police said the crash involved a total of 5 vehicles. Rescuers and police were forced to close every lane on Aurora Bridge in order to extricate crash victims who were trapped in their cars. The cause of the crash is currently unknown.
The Seattle Fire Department confirmed that three people were injured in the crash. Only one crash victim suffered serious injuries, however, and was transported to Harborview Medical Center for treatment.

Traffic into and out of downtown Seattle was snarled during the evening commute due to the Aurora Bridge crash. Traffic delays were seen throughout the Queen Anne and Fremont neighborhoods as drivers sought alternate routes. Seattle buses were also rerouted to the Fremont Bridge, which only exacerbated the delays.
All lanes of traffic on Aurora Bridge were finally cleared shortly after 6:30 p.m.
