Consecutive Accidents Cause Road Closure in College Station

Back to back accidents in College Station shut down part of Earl Rudder Freeway Sunday afternoon.

Police say the first happened when the driver of a Dodge truck swerved off the road, over-corrected and spun out of control, before coming to a stop.

A few minutes later, police say a second accident occurred due in part to traffic congestion from the first.

Officials say the driver of a Toyota Corolla hit a parked car while missing another vehicle that had swerved in front of it.

Two people were taken to St. Joseph's Regional Health Center and were treated for non-life threatening injuries. Police say no citations have been issued.

Northbound lanes of Earl Rudder Freeway were shut down for about one hour while crews cleared the roadway.
