As officers worked to investigate then clear the wreck, they closed all eastbound lanes and all but one westbound lane, snarling traffic on 15th Street, which was exacerbated by the evening rush at 5 o'clock.

Stephanie Taylor, a spokesperson for TPD, said the wreck sent one male to the hospital with serious injuries.
