A 38-year-old Mountlake Terrace man with a suspended license was arrested on suspicion of a DUI hit-and-run on Interstate 5 tonight, the State Patrol reported.

The man crashed his green Ford sedan into a Toyota near Denny Way and continued southbound on I-5, according to tweets from State Patrol spokesman Chris Webb. Then, the driver plowed into the back of a Honda Accord, and the Honda caught fire, Webb said. The man was arrested and taken to Harborview with minor injuries, while the driver of the Honda did not appear to be injured, Webb said.

The collision blocked three southbound lanes of the interstate.
