WEST BATON ROUGE - Two early morning accidents on the Mississippi River Bridge resulted in the temporary closure of I-10 West, and as of 7:29 a.m. both were cleared.

This accident was a hit and run that left three people with injuries; the extent of their injuries is currently unknown.

Baton Rouge police say the accident that occurred shortly after the bridge was reopened involved five vehicles and did not result in any injures.
