Crews are still clearing away one of those accidents near milemarker 109 in the northbound lane. It all started when the axle on a tractor trailer broke, leaving it stranded on the side of the road. That backed up traffic and ended up causing another tractor trailer to run off the road. Then, a tractor trailer and car collided and two more trucks ran into each other. Police say it could take SEVERAL more hours to clean up the original tractor trailer with the broken axle.
