Two accidents involving five vehicles- two tractor trailers, two cars and an SUV- occurred within minutes of each other. The truck accidents led to multiple personal injuries and four people were taken to the hospital. The first accident occurred when a car and tractor trailer collided. This resulted in a back-up of cars and trucks and another accident occurred shortly after involving three more vehicles.
The driver of the car in the first accident was suspected of driving under the influence and was arrested. He, along with several other people, suffered injuries and were taken to local hospitals. Several lanes of the highway were blocked following the truck accidents.
