WESTLAKE, LA (KPLC) -The right lane of I-10 eastbound is now open near La. 378 after an 18-wheeler accident shut down all lanes of travel.
Multiple authorities responded to the wreck that involved at least two 18-wheelers, according to Louisiana State Police.
According to authorities, an 18-wheeler flipped on I-10 eastbound over all three lanes before La. 378 around 3:55 a.m. Another 18-wheeler ran into the trailer.
Fluid was leaking from at least one of the vehicles. The fluid was not hazardous, according to LSP.
Authorities managed to separate the 18-wheelers and sand the area. The right lane is currently open on I-10 east but congestion may continue.
I-10 eastbound was completely shut down near the accident and traffic was diverted to I-210 eastbound. Drivers should expect delays or find alternate routes while congestion persists. Currently the backup is past Ruth Street.
