RAMAH - Authorities say one person was airlifted from the scene of a major crash on the Basin Bridge Friday afternoon.

The crash was first reported around 2:30 p.m. near the Ramah exit. Authorities say it appeared at least two people were hurt in the crash along I-10 east. Officials say it appeared a driver rear-ended an 18-wheeler, wedging the car beneath the trailer.

Crews had to shut down the interstate to allow an AirMed helicopter to land and transport one of the victims.

All lanes have since reopened at the scene of the crash.
