I-10 crash may have caused damage to the roadway

D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - One lane of Interstate 10 westbound in D'Iberville is closed while crews clear an accident and assess damage to the roadway.

D'Iberville police say a flatbed truck carrying a forklift overturned on the westbound on-ramp, tossing the forklift onto the interstate right at the ramp. The heavy equipment caused some damage to the interstate, putting some gouges in the road surface.

Mississippi Department of Transportation crews are on the way to determine how much damage was done and what repairs will be needed.

Marty Griffin, with the D'Iberville Police Department, said the ruts could pose a danger to motorcyclists.

Griffin said the forklift should be cleared by 5:30 p.m., but it's unclear how long the lane and ramp will be closed.
