Motorists found headaches after traffic wrecks snarled Houston-area freeways during rush hour Friday morning.
The latest mishap happened about 8 a.m. on the northbound Gulf Freeway near Griggs. The two-vehicle wreck forced officials to temporarily shutdown three lanes near the crash site while the damaged vehicles were towed away.
No information was available about possible injuries or what caused the wreck.
In a previous crash, traffic was slowed on U.S. 59 in southwest Houston.
The two-vehicle wreck happened about 7:20 a.m. on the southbound Southwest Freeway near West Airport, according to Houston TranStar.
No information was available about possible injuries or what caused the crash. However, one of the vehicles involved appeared to have rolled over on its side.
The wreck forced officials to temporarily block three lanes while workers cleared the area. The lanes reopened about an hour later.
