GAUTIER, MS (WLOX) - At 5:12, MDOT sent a note to WLOX News saying the accident on eastbound I-10 near the Pascagoula River bridge has been cleared.

About an hour ago, an accident involving an 18 wheeler and at least two vehicles on the Pascagoula River bridge backed up traffic from that bridge to Ocean Springs.

Traffic was being rerouted off the interstate at exit 61.

No injuries were reported in the wreck.  A Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman says weather is like to blame.
