GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Gulfport police say an 18-wheeler driving on Highway 90 was trying to make a turn near Midway Avenue. That truck got stuck. And now traffic is backed up because of what police are calling an issue. A WLOX viewer drove by the scene and said the truck is blocking westbound lanes.
Westbound traffic is being moved to Oak Avenue to avoid the mess. It may be after 7:30 pm before the truck is moved and traffic flows normally again.
You're urged to avoid Highway 90 near Courthouse Road for the next few minutes.
