WHISKEY BAY - I-10 is open in both directions after Friday's fatal crash near Whiskey Bay.

I-10 westbound opened at around 11am Saturday morning. Eastbound opened just before 3 pm after being closed for nearly a full day.

Police say the crash involved four 18-wheelers pilling up and two of them catching on fire. The driver of one of the trucks, Rickey Chester, 56, and his wife, Karen Chester were killed.

Expect heavier than normal delays on I-10 and on US-190 until congestion has had a chance to clear up.
