AUSTIN (KXAN) — A five-car crash has moved off the main lanes of Interstate 35 early Tuesday morning, but delays are still heavy on the highway through the Downtown Austin area.

Residual delays remain backed up to the upper and lower decks. The five-car wreck happened around 6 a.m. on the I-35 lanes heading south between the East Riverside Drive exit ramp and the Lady Bird Lake Bridge, which had two left lanes blocked for some time.

Meanwhile, one person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
