Officials say seven vehicles were involved in the crash, including a big rig. Investigators believe the collision was weather-related, and drivers were going too fast.
The truck jack-knifed while trying to avoid crashed vehicles, blocking the southbound lanes of the highway. Traffic was backed up to Shaw Avenue for about an hour.
The lanes have since reopened.
