WINOOSKI, Vt. (WCAX) - Interstate I-89 South is back open after a multi-car crash caused a major traffic backup Saturday morning.

It happened between Winooski and South Burlington, blocking off Exits 14, 15, and 16. The video shows what the highway looked like just after 11:00 a.m. Cars backed up along both north and southbound lanes.

Police say four cars were involved, three of which have significant damage. Another was found in the median. They say they responded to the scene near Exit 14 in South Burlington around 10:40 in the morning. A preliminary investigation shows the car found in the median was traveling northbound when it crossed all the way over into the southbound lane, striking another car, then spinning into two others.

Police say multiple people suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The road completely reopened just before noon.

The crash is still under investigation.
