It was a traffic headache to say the least.

It seems than an accident caused a major backup on Route 5S Westbound this morning.

A caller into the Keeler in the Morning show says it appeared that an SUV struck the center median and rolled into a ravine. Other callers described 5S as a parking lot. We received word just after 8:10 am that traffic had slowly begun to move again.
