ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Two people were critically hurt in a crash that snarled traffic for hours Monday.
A car hit a semi parked on the side of I-40 near Rio Grande in the afternoon. That car spun out of control and was hit by another car.
Two people were taken to the hospital in critical condition. Crack cocaine was found on one of the injured as they went into emergency surgery.
To give investigators space, all but one lane of traffic was closed.
Cars and trucks were backed up for miles. Many drivers got off the freeway and tried to use surface streets like Lomas and Central which caused those streets to back up as well.
Semis were even spotted roaming through downtown residential areas.
Police reopened the freeway at 7:45 p.m.
