Westbound I90 was at a crawl through Spokane a little earlier this morning after a series of accidents, but it appears to be moving again now. One of the accidents involved a driver knocking over a light pole alongside the freeway just west of the Thor Street overpass.

According to the Spokesman-Review, after the light pole came down, other drivers struck the pole. This caused a backup, almost to Argonne Road. This in turn caused two more accidents.

The good news though is that the mess is cleaned up and the freeway running smoothly now. And you can check for slowdowns like these on the Spokane Regional Transportation Management Center website in order to avoid them. Jeff in our office used his phone while on the bus this morning to see what the slowdown was, then informed the bus driver, who promptly got off the freeway at the next exit to avoid the mess.
