HOUSTON – A crash that appeared to involve several vehicles, including a tractor-trailer, snarled traffic Monday on the Southwest Freeway in Montrose.

The crash was reported on the northbound side of Interstate 69-U.S. Highway 59 at Montrose Boulevard.

Video from Sky 2 showed the semitrailer appeared to be jackknifed and the rear of a car was badly damaged.

It was not immediately clear how many people were injured, but crews appeared to be working to free a person from the badly damaged car.

Only one lane of the freeway was getting by the crash. Traffic was backed up for several miles.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
