UPDATED: Crash on I-95 backs up afternoon rush-hour traffic


A crash northbound on Interstate 95 in North Miami-Dade backed up Monday afternoon rush-hour traffic to downtown Miami and west to State Road 836.

The multi-car accident occurred at around 1 p.m. near the Northwest 135th Street exit, Florida Highway Patrol said.

No one was seriously injured in the collisions but several lanes of traffic were closed for wreckage clean-up.

By 4:30 p.m., the lanes had reopened but northbound traffic was still at a snails pace and was impacting every artery feeding to northbound 1-95.

This story will be updated as more information is available.
