VANTAGE — Five people were injured and taken to Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake after a semi-truck lost control, jumped a barrier and hit two cars in the oncoming lane Monday afternoon. The accident occurred about 1 p.m. about two miles east of Vantage, on the hill approaching the Vantage Bridge.

None of the injuries was life-threatening, said John Bryant, District No. 6 public information officer for the Washington State Patrol.

The truck jackknifed, jumped the barrier and hit the two oncoming cars. After the initial accident one of the cars was hit by a second truck, Bryant said. Two victims were in one car, three in another, he said.

The accident closed one lane of I-90 in each direction for at least two hours.

The case is still under investigation, which will determine any charges that might be filed, Bryant said.
