Crash halts traffic on I-74 bridge

UPDATED:  A wreck involving several vehicles, including one that overturned, blocked all Iowa-bound lanes of the I-74 bridge Wednesday morning, August 1, 2012.

The crash was reported just before 7 a.m. on Interstate 74 at the State Street exit in Davenport, Iowa. 

Police said a separate crash happened north of State Street.  As traffic slowed, five vehicles were involved in a wreck at the State Street exit. 

A 56-year-old woman from Orion, Illinois and a 52-year-old man from East Moline, Illinois were each taken by ambulance to an area hospital.  Police said their injuries were not life-threatening.

The vehicle driven by the East Moline man overturned in the crash. 

Traffic backed up across the bridge and into Illinois, past the exit to 5th Avenue in Moline.  Illinois-bound traffic was also backed up as drivers slowed to look at the crash.

One lane was reopened at about 7:45 a.m.  Police had all lanes reopened just after 8 a.m.

Police said they planned to file charges against at least one driver involved in the five-vehicle wreck.
