The incident consisted of two separate collisions involving three vehicles. A sedan traveling in the far right lane collided with a tractor trailer which was traveling in the center lane. As a result of contact with the truck, the sedan spun across two lanes of traffic and came to rest against a guardrail in the left travel lane.
