Accidents on Route 5 cause traffic jam

Two accidents on Route 5 in Hamburg caused a traffic backup this morning.

The first accident occurred about 7:15 a.m. at Lake Avenue in Woodlawn, Hamburg Police dispatchers said.

Traffic was bumper to bumper for about a half mile, from Route 179 south of the Woodlawn Stamping Plant to Lake Avenue.

A second “fender-bender” occurred near the Ford plant some time after the first accident.

Dispatchers said the accidents were cleared up by 8 a.m.

Details of the accidents are not yet available.
