VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

An RV being pulled by a pickup overturned on Interstate 5 in Vancouver and caused a long backup of northbound traffic Thursday afternoon.

Emergency crews responded to the area near the Main Street exit at around 2:30 p.m.

Firefighters said three northbound lanes were blocked for around an hour while the accident was investigated and cleared.

By 3:30 p.m., the Washington State Department of Transportation reported all lanes were back open, but the backup of traffic stretched across the Interstate Bridge into Oregon.

The cause of the crash was not immediately released. There were no reports of any injuries.
