OKANOGAN COUNTY, Wash. -- Giant boulders came crashing down on Disautel Pass, blocking part of the roadway Thursday morning.

The rocks reportedly came down around 7 a.m. on State Route 155 between Nespelem and Omak. There were no reports of injuries. The slide happened a couple miles from the top of the pass, according to an official with the state Department of Transportation.

The WSDOT spokesperson said the rocks were blocking one lane of Highway 155 in the area. Traffic was getting through via the other lane.
