Car pileup on I-74 halts traffic heading into Illinois

BETTENDORF, Iowa -- Traffic is moving again after several cars were involved in a crash that halted traffic heading into Illinois on the I-74 bridge and caused major delays.

The crash happened around 7 a.m. on Nov. 9. Most of the damage seems to have been moved off the road, and there are no longer backups along I-74 on the Iowa side.

Iowa Department of Transportation cameras showed emergency vehicles parked just before the bridge on the eastbound side just before the bridge. Some vehicles can be seen skewed in the lane. Two cars can be seen turned sideways in the road.

Traffic was backed up to Spruce Hills Drive and Kimberly Road in Davenport. Delays lasted for over an hour.

Iowa DOT established a detour route and encouraged people to cross the river by using the Centennial Bridge.

Several cars were seen on tow trucks. See our Facebook Live from The Beast to view the accident as well as other road conditions.
