A five-vehicle wreck Friday afternoon on Interstate 40 just east of mile-marker 232 has westbound traffic stalled while emergency crews work to clear the scene. 

"There are some significant damages, but I don’t see one of these unbelievably scrambled [wrecks]," said John Jewell, Wilson Emergency Management Agency director.

The wreck happened about 2:40 p.m. at mile marker 232 near Lebanon. The extent of any injuries is not yet known, according to Jewell.
