The eastbound lanes of SR 520 were closed just west of Montlake Blvd. for more than an hour Tuesday afternoon due to a multi-vehicle collision.

Eleven people, including nine from bus, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The collision involved a tour bus and three vehicles.

A UW student involved in the crash said it happened so quickly he isn't sure how it started.

The Washington State Patrol said the bus struck the rear of a vehicle, causing a chain reaction into two other cars.

The bus driver and people in the first vehicle hit suffered broken bones.

All patients were taken to Harborview, WSP said.

The I-5 off-ramps to SR 520 were also closed for more than an hour.
