GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Wet road conditions caused a crash on Interstate 10 westbound in Gulfport on Friday morning, and the chain reaction to that crash caused another wreck just a short distance down the road.
Sgt. Damon McDaniel, spokesman for the Gulfport Police Department, said in all, five vehicles were involved in the two accidents. He said only minor injuries were reported.
The first crash shut down two westbound lanes of the interstate, which slowed traffic to a crawl for about an hour.
Both wrecks have been cleared.
