SORRENTO - A wreck closed a portion of I-10 West near Sorrento during rush hour traffic Tuesday afternoon.
The wreck happened around 5 p.m. just past the LA 22 exit. State Police said a single vehicle was involved, and AirMed was transporting a victim in the wreck.
Troopers reopened the interstate just before 6 p.m., later closing a lane to recover the wrecked vehicle.
The Department of Transportation and Development said traffic was backed up three miles behind the wreck. State Police asked drivers to avoid I-10 West between Sorrento and Gonzales until the congestion cleared.
