Crash on I-10 at Welsh exit causes eastbound backups

Welsh police say a head-on collision left two people injured along I-10 at Exit 54 Sunday afternoon.

Welsh Police Chief Tommy Chaisson says a woman driving one vehicle eastbound, crossed the median and crashed into another vehicle traveling westbound. The woman was airlifted to Lake Charles Memorial with severe injuries.

Says the man in the other vehicle was taken to a hospital in Jennings. No condition was available.

Traffic on the eastbound side was down to one-lane, causing backups.
