OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - All lanes of Interstate 10 near exit 50 are open once again. A damaged vehicle has been hauled away. And the diesel fuel that spilled onto one lane of the interstate has been cleaned up.
That eastbound lane near the Ocean Springs exit closed this morning after a wreck and a diesel spill. Hazmat crews were on the scene to clean up the mess. So were officers. They directed traffic away from the spill.
According to a Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman, the fuel spilled around 7:15 this morning after a multi-vehicle wreck on I-10. An 18 wheeler was part of that wreck. The tanker truck had diesel spilling from it after the collision causing the shutdown of the one lane.
