JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Multiple wrecks tied up traffic on Interstate 220 Wednesday afternoon.

Within one mile police investigated three separate crashes, but authorities said there were no serious injuries. Wet roadways may have been a factor in the three separate collisions on Interstate 220.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation reported an accident on I-220 southbound at Hanging Moss Road (Exit 9) around 7:15 p.m.

MDOT reported two other wrecks around 6 p.m.

The northbound inside lane of I-220 at Medgar Evers Boulevard (Exit 5A) was blocked due to an accident involving an 18-wheeler. An officer on the scene said there were minor injuries in the accident.

The southbound outside lane of I-220 was temporarily closed due to an accident near Watkins Drive (Exit 8).

Earlier Wednesday afternoon, MDOT reported an accident on I-220 northbound at Highway 80.
