Accidents involving military vehicles snarl Seattle-area highways

Traffic on Interstate 5 and Washington 520 were both snarled for a while this afternoon due to accidents involving military vehicles.

At about 12:40 p.m., a five-ton National Guard vehicle lost control and struck the barrier on eastbound 520 near Northeast 40th Street in Redmond, said Washington State Patrol Trooper Julie Judson.  The three soldiers in the vehicle suffered minor injuries.

At about 1 p.m., a Mercedes SUV that was part of a Canadian military convoy rolled over in the northbound lane of  Interstate 5 near Boeing Field.  The occupant was slightly injured and taken to Harborview Medical Center, Judson said. The accident blocked the carpool lane for nearly an hour.
