MARTIN CO. -- U.S. 50 is back open today following a 5 vehicle pile up near the Martin / Lawrence County line.

State Police report two semis and 3 passenger vehicles were involved in the accident.

Traffic was diverted around the crash scene and semis were told to park because the detour couldn’t accommodate the large trucks.

Crews had to clean up an oil spill in the roadway, which kept U.S. 50 closed for several hours.

No word on any injuries.
