Olympia intersection closed following collision

Olympia police and firefighters are responding to a two-car collision at the intersection of State Avenue NE and East Bay Drive.

Olympia police Lt. Paul Lower said the collision occurred at about 4 p.m. One car rolled onto its side. So far, injuries appear to be non-life threatening.

The intersection will be closed until at least 5:30 p.m.

“It’s a rather extensive accident, and it’s going to close that road for a good while,” Lower said. “We expect the downtown streets to be bad as people try to get home from work.”
