“Originally three lanes were closed,” said Traffic Management Center Officer Stephan Brandt.

The carpool, number one and number two lanes were closed after the collision. All lanes were open by 11:20 a.m.

Only minor injuries were reported in relation to the crash. It is unclear how many patients may have been transported to the hospital.
