TRI-CITIES, Wash. — Multiple crashes are being reported on I-82, south of Kennewick.

According to Washington State Patrol Trooper Chris Thorson, they’ve responded to more than eight crashes in an hour. Some cars have crashed into the median.

Thorson said most of the crashes are happening near the bridge going to Umatilla County at milepost 129. Drivers are advised to slow down, increase your following distance and be prepared to stop for vehicles slowing down.

“The roadway conditions are getting really bad,” Thorson said on a Twitter video.

Light snow is expected throughout the rest of the day. It’ll get a little heavier tonight, possibly an inch of snow in the Tri-Cities.
