Huntsville police shut down multiple lanes of I-565 east during rush hour Wednesday morning because of a wreck that injured four people.

The wreck happened before 9 a.m. left only the inside eastbound lane on 565 open between Jordan Lane and Triana Boulevard.

Emergency responders said three vehicles were involved in the wreck. A total of four people were injured, HEMSI spokesman Don Webster said, and three of them were taken to a hospital. Webster said none of the injuries were life-threatening. 

A fourth person at the scene refused treatment, Webster said.
