Traffic Moving Again After Being Shut Down On Southbound Highway 65 In Springfield

A crash on Highway 65 between Sunshine and Battlefield Road in Springfield Wednesday morning shut down the left, center and right lanes of southbound traffic for more than an hour.  

We're getting word two ambulances were called to the scene, although the injuries don't appear to be life threatening. 

The wreck happened shortly before 8 a.m. and brought traffic to a standstill. 

Crews were on scene diverting drivers from southbound 65 onto Sunshine until just after 9:00 a.m., and traffic was backed up all the way to Chestnut Expressway. 

MODOT tells KTTS News as of 9:15 a.m., all lanes of southbound 65 have been reopened.
