BRATTLEBORO -- Multiple people were taken for medical treatment following a two-vehicle accident that caused a lengthy traffic jam along Interstate 91 North around noon Friday.

Rescue workers, Vermont State troopers, ambulances and a fire truck were on the scene not far from the on-ramp near Exit 3. One vehicle, with a New Hampshire license plate was damaged and facing the wrong way on I-91 North while the other vehicle, a van with a Vermont license plate, had come to a rest in the highway's median with its airbags deployed and the hood severely damaged. The New Hampshire car was towed from the scene a little after 1 p.m.

The northbound lanes were closed as emergency crews worked on the scene. By early afternoon, at least one lane had been re-opened to traffic.

There was no statement from the Vermont State Police as of 3 p.m. Friday.
