I-10 West reopened after flipped tanker causes hours-long closure
UPDATE: State police say the roadway has reopened as of 4 p.m.
Louisiana State Police will temporarily close I-10 West between the Lobdell and Grosse Tete exits at 9 a.m. Tuesday due to an early morning crash involving an overturned 18-wheeler.
The crash occurred before 6 a.m. and sources say three people were taken to an area hospital with minor injuries.
Around 9 a.m. police say a tow truck will assist in the safe removal of the overturned tanker. Once the process is completed the interstate will reopen.
Officials say the 18-wheeler had been carrying gasoline, but the crash did not appear to cause any leaks.
