NEW ORLEANS - One person died in a wreck involving a charter bus and a car on Interstate 10 in a marshy area of eastern New Orleans, according to authorities.

The Thursday morning accident prompted the closure of I-10's westbound lanes. Police have not released details on the accident or the identity of the person killed.

The Northwest Florida Daily News reported the bus was carrying students from a Florida elementary school to the New Orleans zoo.

Okaloosa County Schools Deputy Superintendent Kaye McKinley says none of the students were hurt and a replacement bus picked them up.
