PHOENIX -- An early morning wreck on eastbound Interstate 10 at about 31st Avenue backed up traffic into the downtown area Wednesday.

Traffic backed up

No lanes were actually closed, but all of the activity was causing slowing and bottlenecking. Video from NewsChopper 3 shortly before 6:30 a.m. showed traffic backed up to about 75th Avenue.

It's not clear what happened, but video from NewsChopper 3 showed two vehicles off the side of the freeway.
