A multi-vehicle accident has closed the Hugh Thomas Bridge Friday morning.

Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Traffic Director "Captain" Ray Allen says a multi-vehicle accident has shut down traffic in the northbound lanes of the Hugh Thomas Bridge. Over 10 vehicles were involved in the crash, and crews are on the scene of the accident. All lanes of the bridge are currently closed while first responders work to clear the scene.

Patchy ice on the bridge is believed to have been a factor in the accident.
