Accidents Block Traffic on Cape Fear Memorial Bridge

WILMINGTON -- Three accidents tied up traffic on the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge Thursday morning.

All westbound lanes on the bridge were closed after three separate accidents involving seven cars that happened in a matter of minutes.

The first accident happened around 6:30 a.m., blocking the westbound lanes heading into Brunswick County.

Then a car failed to stop due to that accident, and ran into the back of another car.

The same thing then happened again a few minutes later.

Nobody appeared to be seriously injured, but traffic backed up for about an hour and a half Thursday morning.
