AUSTIN (KXAN) — Lanes of MoPac heading south that were blocked early Wednesday morning following a rollover wreck that pinned in three people are now clear, according to officials from Union Pacific.

The crash happened near Westover Road around 4:30 a.m., leaving significant damage to a guardrail in the area and blocking three lanes of MoPac. Texas Department of Transportation crews have been notified.

Emergency crews headed out to the area shortly after it happened.
