COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Many individuals were late to work Wednesday morning following a massive pile-up on Interstate-185 southbound in Columbus.

Police say a white pick-up truck was following too closely when it struck an SUV, thus causing a 4-vehicle pile-up.

We are told the SUV swerved into another lane, striking another car. That car's driver slammed into another car.

At least one person was transported to the hospital as a precaution.

The accident happened near the Macon Road exit on I-185 southbound around 8:30 this morning.

Traffic was backed up for about 30 minutes. We are told a couple of lanes were shutdown, while one remained open to keep traffic flowing.

The driver of the pick-up truck was issued a citation for following too closely.
