Update at 11:11 a.m.: All lanes of westbound I-90 at Eastgate have reopenbed, according to the DOT.

Update at 10:43 a.m.: Two left lanes, including the HOV lane, are now open on westbound I-90 at Eastgate, according to the state Department of Transportation. The backup is still at about six miles.

Update at 10:16 a.m.: The state Department of Transportation is closing the ramp from West Lake Sammamish Parkway to westbound I-90 to try to ease traffic congestion.

Original post: Two lanes of westbound Interstate 90 near Eastgate are closed after a collision involving two Washington State Patrol cruisers and a passenger car.

State Patrol spokesman Trooper Chris Webb said troopers were attempting to stop the car just after 9 a.m. and the man refused to stop. It’s unclear why the State Patrol was trying to pull over the driver, he said.

“He eluded a couple of troopers and we did a PIT intervention technique and it worked. A couple of our cars got damaged,” Webb said.

Nobody was hurt.

Traffic is still able to get through in the HOV lane, Webb said.

This post will be updated.
