Traffic reopened after crash on Reserve St. in Missoula


MISSOULA, Mont. - Traffic is moving again on Missoula's busy Reserve Street after two multiple-vehicle accidents stalled travel in both directions.

Officials told NBC Montana that initial evidence showed a car may have caused the worst of the two wrecks after crossing over the center divide into oncoming traffic. Three cars were involved in that wreck.

The second wreck, caused as a result of the first, was a rear-end collision that was quickly cleared.

Missoula Police closed all northbound traffic from Third Street to River Road and southbound traffic was limited to one lane.

All lanes were reopened around 6:35 p.m.

Two people were taken from the scene to St. Patrick hospital. Officials say the injuries were not life-threatening.
