SANTA FE (KRQE) - Crashes related to a hail storm backed up the southbound lanes of Interstate 25 about 12 miles south of Santa Fe for more than two hours Wednesday afternoon.
Several minor crashes were reported about 4:15 p.m. as vehicles slid through up to 6 inches of hail, according to New Mexico State Police.
No injuries were reported.
The crashes happened at and near the Waldo exit near the top of La Bajada grade. The Department of Transportation reported major delays.
A DOT traffic camera showed police detouring southbound traffic off and back onto I-25 using the exit and entrance ramps. Police then reopened one southbound lane just after 5 p.m.
The second lane reopened shortly after 6 p.m. although by then the backup extended a considerable distance toward Santa Fe.
