A spin out crash temporarily blocked the I-82 bridge from Washington into Oregon on Tuesday morning.

That crash has since been cleared but troopers have had their hands full with crashes throughout the morning.

KAPP-KVEW spoke with Trooper Chris Thorson who tells us 10 crashes were reported within one hour this morning on I-182 between Richland and Pasco.

He said three were rollovers and the others were spin outs. There were no serious injuries reported from those crashes.

Since 2 p.m. Tuesday, WSP has responded to 80 crashes on Tri-Cities highways.

Thorson said people are driving “way too fast” for roadway conditions.
