Traffic backed up on I-380 southbound

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) --  Traffic on I 380 came to a stand still Wednesday morning due to a series of car accidents.

The first accident happened around 7:40 a.m. on I-380 southbound at HWY 30 when two vehicles collided. There were minor injuries and the crash is being investigated. Police are not releasing the names of the people involved.

The second and more serious multi-car crash occurred on I-380 at the Wilson Avenue overpass. The accident caused a chain reaction of crashes along I-380 southbound and northbound as drivers either didn't slow down, or did not see others stopping ahead of them.

The second crash is being investigated and details are not available at this time. One of the people involved in the accident was transported to the University of Iowa Hospitals by ambulance. The names are being held until the family is notified.
