OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The Wednesday morning commute quickly became a mess with multiple crashes slowing things to a crawl.

Just after 7 a.m., a crash just past the Pacific Street exit on southbound I-680 became the first issue. At one point, traffic was backed up to the Maple exit.

This crash cleared shortly after 8 a.m., with normal traffic resuming shortly after that.


Jaret Lansford is tracking multiple crashes having a major impact on the morning commute.

Right around 7:30, Dodge was impacted with a crash heading eastbound just past 120th on the Expressway.

Traffic was near a standstill from there all the way back to 168th Street for over an hour before the accident cleared.

Another crash on eastbound Pacific near 120th complicated the process of finding a good alternate route for drivers.

Meanwhile, two different crashes happened on Giles near 117th, causing slow traffic through that area through the 7 AM hour.
