ELMORE COUNTY -- Three people were injured and 22 cars were damaged after a crash on I-84 on the Snake River Bridge.

The crash occured around 10:30 a.m. Saturday. One accident on the bridge due to snow and icy conditions quickly escalated as more and more vehicles were unable to avoid the accident, causing a massive pile-up that blocked the eastbound lanes of 1-84 near mile marker 129.

Traffic at one point was backed up for 30 miles.

Motorists were encouraged to avoid traveling through the area until the situation could be resolved.
