JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

An accident on Interstate 10 east of Highway 63 in Jackson County created a traffic nightmare for morning drivers. Rescue teams needed a helicopter to reportedly take one person to a nearby hospital. Crews could be seen removing a car from the woods immediately south of the interstate, an indication a car swerved off I-10 and crashed into the wooded terrain. The extent of any injuries caused by the wreck has not been released.

Once the injured person was removed from the area, we posted a live image of the accident scene on our WLOX Facebook page. If you're a fan of that page, you saw live images of crews clearing the wreck and reopening the interstate. As of 7:45 a.m., both eastbound lanes had cars once again heading toward the Mississippi/Alabama line.
