3 Accidents Snarl Traffic During Rush Hour in Vestal

Wednesday evening's commute in Vestal required some patience after 9 vehicles were involved in 3 separate accidents in the same area.
Vestal Police say it happened around 5:40 Wednesday evening and began with a 2 car accident on Vestal Parkway in front of Binghamton University. Officials say another driver was distracted looking at the accident and caused a 4 car pile-up. This caused traffic to slow down on 201 southbound and another driver failed to stop in time causing a 3 car pile-up. Of course this backed up traffic for some time. Officials say only one person went to the hospital for evaluation.
