HAPPENING NOW: Traffic backed up on Airport Thruway

Traffic is backed up on Airport Thruway westbound after a car flipped over a block from Wal-Mart on Friday afternoon.

Police officers are directing traffic in both directions, and traffic around Exit 6 is slow.

We're told alternative routes are also blocked as well, with people trying to escape the congestion.

We have a crew on the scene and will have more details soon.
