Update: Traffic is now moving at the Midtown Tunnel. 

A crash has been reported at the Midtown Tunnel that is causing heavy backups.

Norfolk Police say they responded to the tunnel around 3:45 p.m. for a three-vehicle accident.

Police say a woman driving a Ford Explorer from Portsmouth to Norfolk sideswiped a four-door car driven by another woman.

The Explorer continued to cross into oncoming traffic and collided head-on with a Toyota Tundra.

Both drivers of the Explorer and the Tundra were transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the four-door car was not injured.

The driver of the Explorer will be cited for Reckless Driving and Failure to Maintain Control of Vehicle.
