The interchange from northbound state Route 7 to northbound Interstate 705 was closed for about an hour around 8 a.m. today due to an accident that involved two school buses and numerous cars, according to Tacoma Fire.
No one was injured in the accident.
Several cars slid into the guard rail of the icy, elevated interchange, according to Tacoma Fire, and were followed by a school bus carrying some children, which was stranded on the ice but did not hit the cars or guard rail.
A second bus with no passengers then came and bumped the guard rail, Tacoma Fire said, followed by a car that hit one of the buses.
Department of Transportation crews sanded the interchange during the closure.
Tacoma Fire crews said they responded to numerous fender benders following the snow overnight, but that so far no serious injures have been reported.
