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.
