(FORT WORTH, Texas) — Multiple people are trapped following a freeway pileup in Fort Worth, Texas, according to the Fort Worth Fire Department.

The number of people trapped was not immediately clear.

Fort Worth police blamed the I-35 crash on the weather — freezing rain has caused slick roads in the Fort Worth area.

The accident scene covers about 1.5 miles, ABC Dallas affiliate WFAA-TV reported.

“Expect lengthy delays,” police warned in a tweet. “I-35 is backed up in both directions from I30 to 820.”

“If you are involved in a minor accident with no injuries, please exchange information and continue on safely. You can then notify your insurance when you arrive at your destination,” police tweeted.
