IOWA, LA (KPLC) - I-10 eastbound near Iowa is now open, but motorists can still expect some delays, following a traffic accident involving multiple vehicles, including an 18-wheeler.

A dump truck and 18-wheeler traveling westbound collided when a tire blew out on the dump truck, forcing both into the east bound lanes.

Once in the eastbound lanes, a Jeep Grand Cherokee also collided with the 18-wheeler.

The driver of the dump truck was first transported to a local hospital and is being transferred to a Lafayette hospital, according to Sgt. James Anderson, with Louisiana State Police Troop D.

The concrete dividers on I-10 were damaged.
