Traffic delays began this morning around 7:45, and when Cape Police officers responded to an accident at mile marker 92 on I-55 Northbound—they found multiple vehicles involved. Officer Darrin Hickey tells KZIM-KSIM that it all began with a truck that pulled onto the interstate hauling a ladder. The ladder came out off the truck, then a van and a car ran over it. The car was struck from behind. Another vehicle slowed to avoid the crash, and was also struck from behind. The truck that lost the ladder did not stop. Hickey says that part of the investigation is ongoing, and it was fortunate that no injuries were reported in the accident.
