2 hurt, flames erupt after serious crash on I-90 Bridge in Bellevue

BELLEVUE, Wash. — Two people were hurt in a fiery crash on the westbound Interstate 90 Bridge in Bellevue that closed four lanes just west of Interstate 405 Thursday morning.

During that time, the backup was three miles long, and the Washington State Department of Transportation said drivers should avoid the area or expect long delays.

A WSDOT camera showed a car engulfed in flames and black smoke billowing into the air at around 8:15 a.m. on Thursday.

At least two cars were involved in the crash. Bellevue Fire Department medics helped two people who were hurt.

The crash has since been cleared and all lanes are open.
