— A three-car wreck on U.S. Highway 1 caused a traffic jam through Cary Friday afternoon.

All southbound lanes were closed near Walnut Street just after 1:30 p.m. Police cleared the wreck and reopened the highway before 2:30 p.m., but delays could take longer to unwind.

While the highway was closed, southbound traffic was diverted across the grass median and into the northbound lanes.
