CROSS LANES -

A seven car accident on I-64 west shut down all lanes of westbound traffic in the Cross Lanes area. The interstate has since reopened and the accident has been cleared up.

Officials at the scene tell 13 News one person had to be cut out of their vehicle. That person has since been taken to the hospital by ambulance.

We do not have any word on other injuries or what might have caused this accident.

Emergency crews are asking motorists to use caution in the area and on any back roads that may have an unusual amount of traffic because of this accident.
