A traffic alert issued at 12:05 p.m. lists the following crashes:
• A nine-car crash occurred in the southbound lanes at mile marker 191 with complete road blockage, minor injury and no one transported at this time.
• A second crash happened southbound at the 193 mile marker, with no injuries.
• There were five separate crashes in the northbound lanes of I-95 in the Melbourne and Fellsmere area. Some have roadblocks.
"It was raining in the area. It is unknown if all of the crashes are weather related," the report stated.
