At least four people were hospitalized Thursday afternoon following a seven-vehicle crash on Interstate-540 in Fayetteville that shut down northbound lanes, according to emergency crews who responded to the scene.
An eyewitness at the scene said children were involved in the crash, but it is unknown if any were transported to the hospital. Those taken by ambulance to the hospital suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to Central Emergency Medical Services.
Police said the wreck closed northbound lanes while crews worked the area near Exit 65 around 2 p.m. The cars were in the middle of the roadway, blocking traffic.
