JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - All westbound lanes of I-10 are open in Jackson County. Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Chase Elkins said several accidents near the Gautier Vancleave Rd. exit caused traffic backups Sunday afternoon.
The westbound lanes were shut down earlier Sunday after an 18-wheeler caught fire near mile marker 55. Elkins said several smaller accidents happened during the traffic back up caused by the fire.
No injuries have been reported.
