Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - A three-car pileup caused quite a traffic jam on the eastbound lanes of SPID, between Everhart and Weber, just before 1 p.m. Friday.

Police responding to the accident had to shut down two lanes of the freeway for about half an hour as they cleared the scene. Officers said the driver of a red jeep was not able to stop in time to avoid rear-ending a silver van. The impact caused the van to rear-end a black truck.

Thankfully, all those involved in the accident were okay. The driver of the red jeep was given a ticket for speeding.
