FORT MITCHELL, AL (WTVM) - An accident on Hwy. 165 near 101st Airborne Division Road has caused major delays Friday morning.

Traffic has been diverted on this roadway once you hit the delays, a person at the Russell County Sheriff's Office said. 

It is unclear what caused the accidents and delays, but viewers have said traffic is backed up for a few hours in the area due to an overturned log truck around 6 a.m. Friday morning.

Fort Benning posted a message on their Facebook page that says:

ATTN: Soldiers and Families who live in and around Fort Mitchell--due to multiple car accident, residents are reporting heavy issues gaining entrance into the back gate. Please use an alternate route to enter post at another access point. More information will follow shortly.
