“Looks like traffic flow was heavy, and the front vehicle suddenly slowed down for other vehicles and then there was five subsequent rear end collisions – four I guess, five vehicles in total,” said Foreman.

No one was injured and no tickets were issued. Minor damage was reported to the vehicles, and some were towed.
