Traffic is down to one lane on westbound 175th near the Interstate 35 exit this morning as officers respond to and investigate an injury accident.

Sources say a car hit a concrete barrier on eastbound 175th Street shortly after 8 a.m. on Oct. 30. Initially, officers requested a helicopter and shuttered the bridge at I-35. However, one lane of traffic was re-opened by 8:55 a.m. and at least one person was transported via ground to an area hospital.

Officials anticipate slowed traffic for awhile as sheriff’s deputies investigate the accident.
