BLOOMINGDALE, GA (WTOC) -

Emergency crews responded to several wrecks on I-16 Saturday.

The first accident happened near mile marker 152 around 2 p.m. Police say a tire malfunctioned on a pickup truck, causing the vehicle to spin off the road. The only person in the truck during the crash was taken to Memorial.

As crews were working at the scene of the first wreck, a car and a charter bus got into a crash in the congested traffic. This wreck was described as minor.

The third wreck involved three cars near mile marker 154. Troopers said traffic congestion from the bus crash caused the wreck. One car flipped over near mile 154. A truck, SUV, and small car were involved. Three people were hurt. One westbound lane is closed while crews work to clear the scene.

Troopers are still investigating and haven't said who caused this third wreck.
