DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- One person is dead after an accident involving four cars on the Julien Dubuque bridge Monday morning.

Police responded just before 8 a.m. to an area just east of the Dodge and Locust intersection.

Police say a vehicle, driven by 45 year-old Michael J. Berthel of Dubuque, heading east on the bridge swerved into westbound traffic, colliding with another car. A chain reaction involved two other westbound vehicles in the accident. The Berthel was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital. The three drivers of the westbound vehicles did not report any injuries.

Traffic was rerouted to the Dubuque-Wisconsin bridge for about three hours.
