Interstate Accident Causes Traffic Headaches

It's being described as a careless error and it's causing major headaches for West bound travelers on I-10 in Gulfport Saturday night.

It happened around four o'clock this afternoon when, authorities say a tractor trailer rig driven by 55 year old Wiley Vanderburg of North Carolina, struck the median and flipped over the retaining wall where it has remained ever since.

The accident blocked one lane of traffic and according to the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the entire West Bound lane may have to be closed in order to remove the wreck.

Vanderburg was transported Garden Park Hospital with minor injuries and has been charged with Careless Driving.

The 18 wheeler was the only vehicle involved in the accident.
