TRAFFIC: Interstate 10 westbound open again after early morning crash

Posted: Updated:

A section of Interstate 10 westbound was open again Thursday morning following a three-vehicle accident.

At around 6 a.m., a van stopped in the right lane of Interstate 10 between the Opelousas Street and US 171 exits.

A pickup truck tried to avoid the van by changing lanes but sideswiped an 18-wheeler. The truck then ran into the back of the van.

There were no serious injuries, officials said.

Westbound traffic was diverted to Interstate 210 for about 2 1/2 hours.
