Chain-reaction crash blocks Water St. bridge


Eau Claire (WQOW) - A chain-reaction crash on the Water Street bridge blocked traffic in both directions Thursday morning.

It happened around 9 a.m. Police say five vehicles were damaged. They say the driver of a van involved was cited for driving too fast for conditions, and that a chain reaction led to there being so many cars involved. No one was significantly injured or taken to the hospital. Traffic was reopened on the bridge an hour later.
