It was a bad day for drivers on Highway 6 in Robertson County Wednesday.

Just after 10:00, a car traveling southbound near Old Bryan Highway and the Robertson County weigh station lost control after hitting a patch of oil in the roadway.

The car crossed the center line and then over-corrected and rolled, landing upside down in the ditch.

Two adults and a young child were inside the vehicle and all were taken to the hospital.

Both lanes of Highway 6 were shut down until about noon and if the first traffic jam on Highway 6 wasn't bad enough; about 30 minutes after traffic re-opened, another accident about five miles north of the first one shut down both lanes of Highway 6 again.

This time police say an 18-wheeler slowing down to make a right-hand turn onto Old Hearne Road was rear-ended by another 18-wheeler.

The impact caused the first big-rig to lose control and plow through Derrick Scott Auto-Park Dealership's fence and into a brand new parked car.

Both drivers were also taken to a nearby hospital but are expected to be ok.

Both lanes of traffic were re-opened shortly before 4:00.
