According to responders, several vehicles crashed at the scene, resulting in injuries and causing heavy delays stretching back several miles (up to Exit 56). It took road crews about an hour to remove all obstructions, after which all involved motorists were declared accounted for and assisted by medical personnel. No reports yet on entrapment, DUI, or hit-and-run. The incident is currently being investigated, and authorities will release more info when appropriate.
