MOUNT VERNON, Wash. —

Detoured traffic from the collapsed I-5 Skagit River bridge has led to an increase in crashes in Mount Vernon.

KOMO reports (http://bit.ly/13pxoS8) there were 75 crashes in the first week after the May 23 bridge collapse and about a third of those involved detoured vehicles.

Residents are complaining about the number of semi-truck crawling through town in close proximity to passenger cars.
