NEW BEDFORD — Two crashes on Route 195 westbound in New Bedford have backed up traffic all the way to Exit 18 in Fairhaven.

One crash occurred between the on-ramp and off-ramp from 195 to Coggeshall Street. The other crash was closer to the Route 18 off-ramp; that scene has reportedly been mostly cleared, but some debris still remains in the road.

Motorists are advised to seek an alternate route.
