BEACHWOOD, OH - Not the best way to start the week.

Commuters taking I-271 north Monday morning were stuck in lots of traffic, courtesy of two separate accidents in the area around the Cedar Road exit in Beachwood.

The one accident involved an overturned cement truck. It was actually off to the side of the road and not blocking any lanes, but it caused quite the slowdown.

Fox 8 traffic reporter Patty Harken reports that a separate accident in the same area also contributed to commuters' headaches.
