LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Traffic is slowly beginning to move following an accident in the eastbound lanes of I-10 at the foot of the Calcasieu River bridge.
The accident before noon left traffic at a standstill for nearly four hours, at times completely closing the interstate. All lanes are now open, though.
Traffic has been an issue this afternoon throughout Southwest Louisiana, including I-10 westbound through Lake Charles. A previous accident has been cleared, although some congestion remains.
In DeRidder, a police unit escorting a military convoy was involved in a crash and just south of DeRidder, there was an accident on US 171.
