Earlier angry residents of Matholesville and surrounding areas took to the streets and caused traffic to come to a standstill. Teargas and rubber bullets were fired to disperse the angry crowds that were throwing rocks at police and vehicles.

Motorists, however, are still urged to avoid the road despite a heavy police presence.
