Eastbound lanes of I-10 closed for wreck cleanup


An accident on Interstate 10 in Gulfport has all eastbound lanes closed near exit 34. 

The accident happened shortly before 9pm. Gulfport Police say a Ford Mustang traveling east lost control, spun around, and stalled out on the interstate. An SUV headed in the same direction hit the Mustang while it was stalled, knocking the SUV on its side. Then another SUV hit the overturned vehicle. 

A total of three vehicles and six people were involved, and luckily there were no life threatening injuries. Several people were still being taken to the hospital, just to be checked out.

At 9:15pm, the eastbound lanes of I-10 were closed. They are expected to reopen within the next hour as the wreckage is removed from the roadway.
