The crash was just one of numerous incidents on the interstate before lunch that caused delays.  

I-10 westbound at the 10/110 split split was slow due to construction crews blocking one lane.  Eastbound traffic was heavy coming into Baton Rouge over the river, too.  Eastbound traffic started building east of Highway 415.
