Westbound lanes on a portion of I-540 were closed due to a wreck.

Multiple lanes were closed to traffic.

The crash involved an Utz snack truck and a couple of other vehicles. At least four people were transported to the hospital but their conditions are unknown.

Traffic was backed up for miles and many motorists tried to turn around in order to go in the opposite direction.

Traffic was slowly allowed through as authorities opened one westbound lane.
