Two lanes of I-95 northbound are closed because of two seperate wrecks that occured just before 10 p.m. Thursday.

The first accident, which occured just south of I-16, caused the second wreck.

"When the first police officer arrived on the scene a second accident was actually occuring also," said Pooler Fire Chief Wade Simmons. "So we actually had two accidents 100 yards apart involving 4 veicles."

Three people were transported to Memorial University Medical Center.

Two of the three people were reportedly transported with serious injuries, but they did not seem to be life-threatening, according to Simmons.

Two of the three northbound lanes are closed but crews are working quickly to clear the wreckage.
