BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Two crashes blocked parts of Interstate 5 on Father’s Day.

A rollover crash north of Ferndale caused a two-mile back-up on northbound I-5 yesterday afternoon.

Two passengers were taken to the hospital.

An SUV hauling a trailer jackknifed and blocked southbound traffic on I-5 south of Bellingham yesterday morning.

Both lanes were blocked near Samish Way for about an hour.
