Three accidents tied up traffic in College Station Monday evening.
The first was on Highway 6 near Southwest Parkway around 4:40 p.m. Police say a ladder fell off a pick-up headed south. A car following behind tried to miss it but the driver lost control, causing the car to roll.
The driver of the car received with non life threatening injuries. The driver of the pick-up was cited for failure to secure load.
Another pick-up going too fast caused a second accident on Highway 6 just north of the bridge at Harvey Road at around 5:15 p.m. Police say the driver tried to avoid traffic that was stopping in front of him from the previous wreck and slammed into a guard rail.
No one was injured.
The driver was cited for failure to control speed.
About 30 minutes later, there was another collision on Highway 6 at the Harvey exit. A black Lincoln was slowing due to traffic from the previous accident when it was struck behind by a Ford Explorer, which was hit by a Walmart tractor trailer.
The driver of the Explorer was taken the College Station Medical Center for treatment.
The driver of the Explorer and tractor trailer were cited for following too close.
