Multiple crashes on I-75 Southbound in Bartow County caused major delays Sunday afternoon.

According to authorities, there were a total of 10 crashes with 10 injuries. Twenty vehicles were involved in the crashes. All injuries were non-life threatening.

The accident, which occurred at mile marker 280, was caused by a single vehicle that spun out and struck a guardrail while traveling in heavy rain. This crash then caused a chain reaction of crashes behind it.

As a result, the roadway was closed and passengers were stuck in traffic for several hours. 

The crash is still under investigation at this time.
