LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

At least two accidents have been reported on the Interstate 10 bridge Thursday afternoon.

The first crash happened on Interstate 10 westbound on the east side of the bridge. A vehicle hit the guardrail and is blocking one lane. Westbound traffic was backed up past the Enterprise Boulevard exit.

City police said the right westbound lane of the bridge is completely closed and could remain that way for at least an hour.

Another crash, involving two vehicles and a motorcycle, happened on Interstate 10 eastbound near the west base of the bridge. Eastbound traffic was backed past the PPG Drive exit.
