Tragic accidents on I-70 in the past two days have led to severe traffic chaos in Clay County.

On Thursday, a pedestrian was tragically killed on the interstate highway at mile marker 22. The next day, Friday, two accidents, one of them fatal, occurred along the portion of highway in Putnam County. These incidents have led to heavy traffic being redirected onto US40 through Clay County, causing congestion in the Brazil area for hours.

As of 2 p.m. Friday, westbound traffic was backed up to the Clay/Putnam County line, with frustrated drivers honking horns.
