Miss River Bridge crash involving two 18-wheelers, dump truck cleared; all I-10 E lanes reopened
BATON ROUGE - Three large trucks involved in a crash on the Mississippi River Bridge, one of them appearing to be jacknifed, resulted in a temporary interstate closure and then lane closure along I-10 East as officials worked to remove the vehicles Wednesday morning.
As of 10 a.m., the crash site was cleared and all lanes were reopened.
The incident occurred around 7:30 a.m. when two 18-wheelers and a dump truck somehow got into a wreck and caused severe traffic congestion.
