BATON ROUGE - Police say a wrong-way driver caused a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 10 this morning, causing officials to shut down the roadway for more than 6 hours.

It happened just after 2 a.m. on the Mississippi River bridge.

Police say one driver was pronounced dead on the scene. Two others were taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.

Investigators have not said whether the wrong-way driver was the one killed in the crash.

None of the victims' names have been released at this time.

Michael Shingleton will have the very latest on the investigation later today on News 2 at 4 and 5.
