A closure along the West Loop overnight caused several big fender benders within a two-hour period.The first accident was a four car pile-up around 10:30pm. A driver stopped for the right lane closure and three others couldn't stop in time. One person was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Just about an hour later at the same location, another car swerved to get out of the way of the lane closure and cut off a man on a motorcycle.

The biker lost control and crashed. He was taken to a hospital complaining of back pain and road rash. Another minor collision happened again in the same spot soon after.

We're told police then called TxDOT officials to reposition the cones around the lane closure.
