A five-car accident on southbound I-35 caused some major delays for drivers in Bellmead Sunday night.

DPS troopers on scene said a driver tried to slam on his brakes when he was sideswiped by the car behind him near exit 339.

A Ford Mustang, which was three cars behind the initial wreck, didn't slow down and hit the back of the car in front of him. Troopers said that caused a domino effect and five cars in total were involved in the crash.

Troopers said two small children in the first car had minor injuries but no one was taken to the hospital.

Traffic was down to one lane so crews could clear the scene.

The driver of the Mustang was cited with failure to control speed.

Another driver was arrested for an outstanding warrant unrelated to the crash.
