LACASSINE, LA (KPLC) -

Louisiana State Police have confirmed that they are responding to an overturned vehicle on Interstate 10 Eastbound near Lacassine in Jefferson Davis Parish.

Authorities say the inside lane is blocked, causing traffic to back up to Iowa.

Both lanes of Interstate 10 Eastbound may have to be closed in order to clean up the area, because the vehicle was hauling a loaded trailer.

There is no estimate yet on how long cleanup efforts are expected to take. Motorists are advised to detour via US 90.
