No traffic problems on I-10 from chemical leak

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Traffic is flowing smoothly on I-10 near Biloxi after an 18-wheeler leaked flammable chemicals early Wednesday morning.

Biloxi Police told WLOX News the truck was heading east through Gulfport when the driver first noticed a strong odor. The driver pulled over at a Biloxi truck stop and discovered his chemical load was leaking.

Hazmat crews are still at the scene right now. Police don't know how long the chemicals were spilling out, nor are they telling us what type if chemical was leaking.

No injuries have been reported.

WLOX crews are working on this developing story and will have more information later today on WLOX News and on WLOX.com.
