GAUTIER, MS (WLOX) -

According to officials with the Mississippi Department of Transportation, an accident involving an 18-wheeler and a camper trailer has eastbound traffic blocked on Interstate 10 near the Gautier exit in Jackson County.

We are hearing reports that traffic is backed up bumper to bumper for a few miles.

Lt. Johnny Poulos, with the Mississippi Highway Patrol, said debris from the camper is hindering the cleanup process, but crews are working hard to get the road clear so traffic can move normally.
