LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Interstate 10 eastbound, from the I-210 spur in Sulphur to the Ryan Street overpass in Lake Charles, is closed following an accident early Friday morning.

An 18-wheeler crashed on the Ryan Street overpass and caught fire around 8 a.m. Friday morning. The interstate was still closed at 3:25 p.m.

Interstate 10 eastbound after the Enterprise Exit remained open.

The 18-wheeler was hauling orange juice and the driver was not injured in the crash.

I-10 westbound is open but moving slowly.

Most eastbound traffic is being diverted to Interstate 210. Around 2:20 p.m., city police reported two crashes on I-210 -- one near the Enterprise Boulevard exit and the other near the Broad Street exit.
