MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - A multi-vehicle crash in Midland is causing traffic problems in Midland.

We're told the crash happened just before 5 p.m. in the westbound lanes of Loop 250 between Midland Drive and Midkiff Road.

The City of Midland said four vehicles were traveling westbound when the driver of one vehicle crashed into the back of another vehicle, causing that vehicle to hit the vehicle in front of it causing a domino effect.

In all, three people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Authorities said three drivers were cited for following too closely.

City officials said they expect traffic to thin out by 6 p.m. after westbound traffic was closed off from Midland Drive all the way to Big Spring Street.
