Separate traffic crashes create driving headaches on US 31
Police tell us a crash on US 31 and 7B Road in Marshall County resulted in a serious injury, closing the busy highway for awhile on Friday.
The crash happened shortly after 11 a.m.
Our photographer at the scene says a semi and car were both headed southbound on US 31 when the wreck happened.
The car had one occupant. The person has serious injuries and was flown from the scene.
The semi driver was uninjured.
The northbound lanes were closed while police investigated.
Around 12:40 p.m., a second crash involving a car and semi was reported -- this one on US 31 and 5A Road.
This was reportedly caused by the backup from the first crash.
There is no word on injuries in that crash.
