JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Traffic is backed up for miles along Interstate 10 in Jackson County after multiple accidents.
Authorities are on the scene of a crash near mile marker 61, which is at the Gautier-Vancleave Road exit. It happened just after 1 p.m. The eastbound lane of traffic is backed up while police work a wreck involving a car that crashed into the median. Traffic is moving but it is going slowly.
Traffic is also moving slowly in the westbound lanes atop the Pascagoula River Bridge on I-10 after a five-vehicle crash that happened shortly after noon. Mississippi Highway Patrol says all five vehicles rear-ended one another in a domino effect. There are no injuries. The wreck has been cleared but there is still a lot of congestion in the area.
If you are traveling east- or westbound in Jackson County, expect delays.
