EVERETT, Wash. – The Washington State Patrol says DUI may have been a factor in a crash that injured two people and tied up traffic on I-5 in Everett for more than an hour.

The backup from the two  car crash near Lowell Thursday morning extended for several miles and blocked at least three southbound lanes.

Troopers say witnesses reported seeing a Mazda being driven erratically prior to the crash.

The driver, a 58-year-old Bellingham woman, is suspected of being intoxicated.
