NOLANVILLE (January 26, 2013) - Highway 190 was shut down for about an hour Saturday as crews worked to clear two accidents between Belton and Killeen.

At about 6:30 p.m., a vehicle was headed toward Killeen on Highway 190 going over a hill when it hit a guardrail causing it to spin into oncoming traffic.

Firefighters say two other drivers saw the accident which distracted them and led to another accident.

No one was taken to the hospital.

At first, crews tried to slow down traffic and keep it to one lane.

But, because many drivers didn't slow down, crews say they shut down the entire area until around 9 p.m.
