A four car pileup causes a traffic jam on Highway 80 in Odessa on Monday night.

It happened right after six when police say a red pick up truck rear-ended a car.

That started a chain reaction causing two other cars to get hit from behind.

Officer say the driver of the truck, who caused the original accident, said the sun was in his eyes, and didn't see the car in front of him.

One person was taken to the hospital.

The driver of the red truck was ticketed for failure to control speed.

The four car accident forced traffic to be re routed to the service road.
