Wrecks close I-10E over basin bridge
BATON ROUGE - State Police said multiple wrecks closed I-10 East over the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge this morning.
Troopers said the wrecks completely blocked the roadway, and involved at least two 18-wheelers. Pictures posted on the LSP Facebook page showed a pair of cars almost entirely crushed together under the trailer of one big rig.
There was no word on the status of the drivers or passengers, but Acadian Ambulance and AirMed were on scene.
One lane was reopened around 1:50 p.m. Drivers were told to avoid I-10 East and use U. S. 190 instead for the time being.
