Multi Vehicle Crash Reported at West Belt Loop Between Highway 20 and 26
Update: The crash has now been cleared and all lanes are open.
According to a Facebook post by the Mills Police Department, there was a multi-vehicle crash at the intersection of Highway 20 to 26 at the West Belt Loop.
Traffic in the westbound lanes was diverted to the bypass while the accident was being cleared.
Kate Acord, the Public Information Officer with the Mills Police Department, said that the accident involved two Chevy Silverados, with one making a turn and being t-boned by the other.
While one person was transported to a hospital, it was only done as a precaution as they had minor injuries.
Acord said the accident took around 40 minutes to clear, with driver inattention as the main cause, while ice near the vehicle could have contributed to the accident.
