Hopefully you finished your commute to work before getting snarled in the backed up I-35 traffic going in Belton this morning.

Belton police issued an alert around 8:15 AM about an eight vehicle pileup that occurred at the intersection of I-35 and I-14/US 190. They haven't said what caused the wreck, but if you're from here and make that drive every day, you know the possibilities are endless given how suddenly people change lanes or slam on their breaks in that area.

It seems to mostly be impacting northbound traffic, but there could be southbound delays as well.

Take an alternate route if you can or expect to be moving slowly. Traffic hadn't stopped, but it was running a little slow. As always, keep an eye out for emergency workers and give them plenty of space. There's no reason to make this situation worse because you're in a hurry.
