Multi vehicle crash snarls midday commute in Norwood
Around 11:15 this morning police and fire crews responded to Route 1 South near the intersection with University Ave in Norwood for a multi vehicle accident with at least 1 injured person. Scanner transmissions indicated that one subject fled the scene and was apprehended a short time later by officers. The southbound side of the roadway was closed for approximately one hour as crews worked to clear the vehicles from the roadway and conduct the investigation. At the time of the road closure traffic was backed up to Route 128 in Dedham approaching the scene. The road is now open and delays have quickly eased. More updates posted as they become available.
