Multiple law enforcement agencies, including HAZMAT crews, are working a major wreck in Iowa at mile marker 44 eastbound, near the U.S. 165 overpass.
Traffic on I-10 eastbound in this area is being detoured to U.S. 90.
Louisiana State Police confirm that two 18-wheelers collided and injuries are reported. Extrication crews were called in to free the trapped motorists.
HAZMAT has been called in to assess what is believed to be a diesel leak. There is no word yet on whether that is coming from a punctured fuel tank or from diesel one of the trucks was transporting.
