— Two wrecks on rain-slick Interstate 40 slowed westbound traffic Monday near Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

One wreck near the Aviation Parkway exit that occurred shortly before noon involved four cars, and another wreck near the Harrison Avenue exit closed three lanes of traffic.

"With the conditions the way they are, we might see more accidents throughout the afternoon," WRAL News traffic reporter Brian Shrader said.
