Accidents slow things down on Interstate 81

An accident is causing delays down on I-81 North in Montgomery County.

MONTGOMERY CO., Va. — Several accidents throughout the day have been causing headaches for drivers along Interstate 81.

Traffic is backed up for several miles Saturday night because of a tractor trailer accident at mile marker 126 on I-81 North in Montgomery County.  The north left lane is closed.

Earlier, a three-car accident at mile marker 121 led to backups as well.  That traffic sparked another multi-vehicle accident a few miles south, which led to a fatality.

Earlier in the day, an accident on I-81 South near Salem backed up traffic for seven miles just before 11 a.m.
    
Five cars and a tanker truck were involved. 

State Police say the cars were stopped for a previous accident when the truck came up from behind, smashing the cars in front.  There were no major injuries.
