SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A four car accident slows down traffic on Hwy 155 South and FM 344 near Noonday Friday afternoon.  DPS Troopers say a man did not see the car in front of him coming to a stop at a red light and rear ended it.  That set off a chain reaction, involving four cars in all.

Troopers say an elderly woman was taken to Mother Francis Hospital with unknown injuries.  Traffic was backed up on Hwy 155 for an hour, but all lanes are back open.  The driver who caused the accident, troopers say will be ticketed for failing to maintain speed.
