I-459 Open after late-night closure

Posted: Updated:

Interstate 459 is back open today, following a crash late Sunday night.  It happened just after 10:30 p.m. on I-459, in between exit one and exit six in Bessemer.  Police say a Toyota SUV, heading southbound, went into the median, flipped over and ended up in the northbound lane.  Witnesses tell ABC 33/40 that people were thrown out of the vehicle.

The late-night traffic came to a standstill, closing off the northbound lanes.  Two people in the vehicle were transported to UAB Hospital for treatment.  The interstate was re-opened after about 45 minutes.
