Multiple accidents disrupt rush hour traffic

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Hundreds of Lubbock drivers encountered serious traffic problems on their way home Wednesday night.

Cars were bumper to bumper around 5:30 p.m. due to multiple car crashes on South Loop 289.

Traffic was moving at a snail's pace as police left only one eastbound lane open on the Loop near Indiana.

Authorities have not yet released a report, but we know at least four different accidents happened between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.

There's no word about injuries suffered as of Wednesday night.

Witnesses on the scene tell us two on-ramps were closed near Quaker and Slide.

We're told that cars were lined up for more than four miles, stretching past the Marsha Sharp Freeway.
