Overall traffic lighter; collisions back up traffic on Hwy. 9

The driver of a 2010 Dodge Ram pickup truck pulling an empty animal trailer traveling north on Highway 9 Wednesday crossed the centerline around a curve and hit a semi truck, according to State Patrol reports. The driver of the semi truck was taken to Skagit Valley Hospital for treatment of his injuries. Law enforcement has been struggling to keep up with traffic calls since the Interstate 5 Skagit River Bridge collapsed last Thursday night.
