Overturned 18-wheeler closes Hwy 49/I-10 on ramp

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - If you're traveling south on Highway 49, you won't be able to use the west bound on ramp to Interstate 10. The ramp was closed Wednesday evening while emergency crews worked to move an overturned 18-wheeler.

The truck had a sign on it indicating that some of its cargo may be "corrosive material." Gulfport Fire Chief Pat Sullivan said crews were working to unload the chemical onboard the truck. That process was expected to take several hours.
