    Two crashes in both directions of Interstate Highway 880 in Union City caused injury and traffic headaches early Wednesday morning for five hours.

    All lanes reopened just before 9:30 a.m.

    The first crash was reported at 4:19 a.m. when a minivan slammed into a stalled big rig in the northbound direction at the Alvarado Niles Road onramp. Just before 6 a.m., the NBC Bay Area chopper spotted the minivan being pulled out from underneath the rig.

    Then, shortly before 5:30 a.m. a tow truck responding to the first crash ended up striking a vehicle and ended up in the center median on southbound I-880.
