Traffic was backed up for at least two miles in either direction as crews and ambulances responded to the scene. The truck reportedly jackknifed during the accident, damaging about 12 feet of the center concrete wall.
The accident was cleared from the roadway at about 4:30 p.m., and as of 8 p.m., the cause was still under investigation. Porter could not confirm how many of the drivers involved in the accident sustained minor injuries.
Shortly after the pileup was cleared, two other vehicles were involved in a minor accident near the original crash site, tripping up traffic once again, although it was moved quickly to the shoulder, Porter said.
