Traffic crawling on I-59 after 18-wheeler accident

PEARL RIVER COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Traffic is crawling on Interstate 59 between Poplarville and Carriere right now while crews clear an accident involving two 18-wheelers.

Mississippi Highway Patrol officials report the collision happened just after 11 p.m. near the 27 mile marker. One of the big rigs was carrying 80,000 pounds of product. We're told all of it has to be moved to another truck.

Dispatchers said all lanes of I-59 are open at this time but traffic is moving very slowly.

Troopers report no one was injured in the accident.
