D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - Both northbound lanes of Highway 67 just north of I-10 are closed Tuesday afternoon, according to Captain Terry Hines with D'Iberville police.

Hines said an 18-wheeler is flipped on its side due to a chain reaction. Hines said a vehicle was traveling on Highway 67 and hit another car. That car collided into another vehicle.

The driver of the 18-wheeler reportedly tried to avoid the accident and ended up flipping on its side.

Hines said there are no major injuries. One person was taken to the hospital as a precaution. Authorities are on the scene working to clear the accident.

Drivers needing to head north on Highway 67 can take Lamey Bridge Road or the Woolmarket Exit.
