FAIRVIEW — A multiple-vehicle accident on U.S. 75 disrupted rush hour traffic in both directions Thursday afternoon.

The wreck appeared to involve a van, three sedans and two 18-wheelers in the northbound lanes of the freeway south of McKinney near Ridgeview Drive. The accident happened in a narrow, two-lane stretch of the highway with no shoulders and with concrete barriers on either side of the road.

The southbound lanes were initially closed to accommodate emergency vehicles.

It was not immediately known if anyone was injured in the wreck.
