The intersection of Crosstown Pkwy & Cameo Blvd is partially closed at the moment due to the severity of the crash, causing traffic delays. Vehicles traveling on either of the two roads near the scene of the accident are pulling to the roadside to allow crews work. Some are pulling into nearby side streets. The delay of traffic on this route is due to the severity of the crash. It is best to use an alternative route.
