ARLEE -

 A pair of two-vehicle accidents slowed traffic on U.S. Highway 93 North near Arlee on Friday afternoon. 

The two wrecks at the intersection of Jocko Road were reported to the Montana Highway Patrol just before 12:15 p.m. on Friday.

Authorities say the driver of a vehicle clipped the back of a horse trailer and flipped over. The second crash was caused when a driver seeing the initial accident slowed down and then was rear-ended by a truck - sending it across the road.

While no serious injuries have been reported, at least two people were taken by ambulance to a local hospital.

We'll have more information as it becomes available.
