Traffic Update: Multi-vehicle crash on Mississippi River Bridge cleared
WEST BATON ROUGE - As of 11 a.m. Monday, all automobiles involved in a multi-vehicle crash on the Mississippi River Bridge have been cleared and all lanes are open.
The multi-vehicle wreck occurred on I-10 EB between LA-1/Port Allen/Plaquemine/Exit 153 and LA-30/Nicholson Dr/LSU/Exit 155 A and though the wreck is cleared, traffic remains stopped from LA-415/Lobdell/Exit 151.
The incident was described as two separate crashes, one triggered by the other, that involved a total of six vehicles.
The main crash involved a pickup truck that was damaged and is waiting to be cleared from the roadway by a tow truck.
Apparently, a vehicle that was carrying sheet metal ran into the back of the pickup truck and the collision sent debris flying. After the crash, the debris was scattered along the roadway
