Cars pointed in multiple directions to escape 635 wreck

Posted: Updated:

A wreck on eastbound 635 turned into a surreal traffic experience for drivers on Tuesday.

All eastbound lanes of 635 were closed near Skillman due to a wreck on Tuesday afternoon in northeast Dallas.

The backup quickly went past the High 5 on 635 and some drivers became "trapped" on the road and unable to exit due to the lane blockage.

As a result, drivers attempted to turnaround and head westbound on the eastbound road – creating a surreal scene caught by Sky4 of cars facing every direction possible.

The wreck was finally cleared about 3 p.m., but the backup and traffic mess remained.
