Three-Vehicle Accident Causes Traffic Delay on Crosstown

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Traffic was held up at around 8:15 a.m. Thursday after a three-vehicle accident on the Crosstown Expressway at Tarlton Street.

According to police, a car traveling on the far left northbound lane of Crosstown bumped into a car that was traveling in the center lane. That caused the car to hit another vehicle in the right-hand lane.

As always, police say you should express caution while driving in the morning rush hour.

"Slow down on rush hour," said Lt. Chris McClure of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "Give some space in between cars."

Police said traffic was backed up for about two miles on the freeway because of the accident.
