2-vehicle wreck backs up traffic on I-16 EB


An accident on I-16 eastbound had traffic backed up for miles. 

Two vehicles collided with each other during the Monday morning communte on I-16 eastbound near the Dean Forest Road exit. Officials say the wreck was caused by following too closely. 

One of the drivers involved complained of pain and was treated. There is no word on their injuries at this time. 

A portion of one of the eastbound lanes of I-16 had to be closed for about an hour while crews worked to clear the scene. Traffic was reportedly backed up past the I-95 exit. 

The road is now clear and back open to traffic.
