An eight-car pileup brought traffic along U.S. Highway 190 to a near halt Monday around 8 a.m.

The accident was caused by a vehicle pulling out in front of another near W.S. Young Drive, causing a “domino effect,” said Carroll Smith, Killeen Police Department spokeswoman.

Police diverted traffic from the eastbound lane onto the service road. Smith said several people with minor injuries were transported to area hospitals.
