2 State Patrol cars hit near icy Snoqualmie Pass
SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. - Two Washington State Patrol cars were hit Saturday amid snowy conditions off Interstate 90 near Hyak at Snoqualmie Pass, state troopers said.

Several other vehicles also spun out and were involved in minor crashes amid very icy, slippery conditions at the pass.

Exit 54 off the freeway was closed for a time after the crashes to remove vehicles from the off-ramp, but it has now reopened.

"It is very slick in the area," said one state trooper at the scene. "Please drive slow for conditions."
