CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

An accident involving nine vehicles Tuesday morning caused quite the traffic jam along the 3200 block of SPID.

"A total of four accidents involving nine vehicles, all within about five minutes," said Sgt. Michael Garcia of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "Luckily no one was injured. Just people not paying attention, slowing down, rubbernecking in other accidents."

It all started when one major accident happened along the 3200 block of SPID involving two cars. Officers said that the accident led to three separate crashes. Police said the drivers were not paying attention and hit the vehicles in front of them.

Police said an older model GMC truck did flee the scene of the accident, and that driver could be facing a citation for a hit and run.
