No Fatalities In Chain Reaction Accident On I-10

A two car accident caused a chain reaction Wednesday night on I-10. The accident happened around 5:30 in the east bound lanes of I-10 near exit 50 in Jackson County.

According to Trooper Jason Gazzo, the two car accident held up the far right east bound lane. That wreck, combined with heavy traffic, caused a chain reaction involving another seven vehicles.

Five people were injured, two in separate cars were airlifted to Mobile. There were no fatalities.

One eyewitness described his efforts to help a victim.

"We busted a windshield out along with the state trooper and got one guy out and he was bleeding real bad," Craig Dumas said.

According to Trooper Gazzo, since Katrina, heavy traffic near exit 50 has become a problem due to the loss of the Ocean Springs-Biloxi Bridge.
