About 4:15 p.m., four drivers crashed into each other on northbound I-5 near 41st Street in Everett.
State troopers cleared the highway. The drivers and passengers were waiting by the side of the road, including several young women in summertime garb, Trooper Keith Leary with the State Patrol said.
More drivers crashed, apparently while checking out the women.
Leary personally saw two more accidents happen within a minute involving distracted drivers. Speed also was a factor, he said.
Only minor injuries were reported, and no one was taken to the hospital. Traffic was back to normal within minutes.
Leary reminds drivers to follow posted speed limits -- and to keep their eyes on the road.
