Traffic didn’t come to a complete stop, as drivers were detoured around the crashes, off of Highway 33 going northbound.
Police, fire, and ambulance services are on scene at both crashes. One person went to hospital from the rollover crash.
Tow trucks are on-site at both crashes.
A witness at the rollover crash said it was caused when a vehicle tried to change lanes driving through the intersection and hit another car.
