LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. -

The Washington State Patrol says no one was injured in a DUI crash that blocked east and westbound lanes of I-90 Tuesday morning near Liberty Lake. 

The crash happened in the median of I-90 and blocked both lanes for a brief period of time while emergency crews worked to clear the wreckage. About 20 minutes later, the eastbound lanes were reopened, but the westbound lanes remain closed as of 7:15 a.m., however, they expect all lanes to be open by 8:00 a.m.

A release sent out by the Washington State Patrol before 7:00 a.m. stated there was one injury involved in the crash, however Trooper Jeff Sevigney tells KHQ's Cynthia Johnson that no injuries have been reported.
