Update: Two deaths reported in series of I-10 accidents

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Law enforcement agencies in Jackson County have confirmed two people are dead after a series of accidents on Interstate 10 near mile marker 68.

Eastbound traffic is at a standstill.  And authorities are not sure when that section of the interstate will reopen.  The Mississippi Highway Patrol and Moss Point police are both at the scene.  They're reconstructing the accident, and won't reopen the interstate until that work is finished.

WLOX News has a crew heading to the accident scene.  Look for details from I-10 on Good Morning Mississippi Weekend and on WLOX.com.
