    get past

    "Only one lane is getting past the accident at this time, and traffic is building up bumper-to-bumper behind the crash."

    I wonder what the underlined expression means, please. Could I rephrase the sentence as "Because of the accident only one lane can be used at this time, and..."?

    Re: get past

    Only one lane is operative, yes.
    (paraphrasing loosely)
