I-10 Crash causes road closures, claims four lives
GROSSE TETE - State police say at least four people
are dead and a portion of Interstate 10 westbound is closed after a
fiery crash involving three 18-wheelers and a car near Grosse Tete.
Investigators say a 15-year-old girl survived the crash and was
not seriously injured.
Troopers tell WAFB-TV an eastbound 18-wheeler sideswiped another
that was stopped on the shoulder early Friday. The driver lost
control, crossed the median and collided head-on into a third
18-wheeler traveling west.
Troopers say the second collision caused a fire. Once the fire
was out, they found a car in the wreckage.
None of the names of those involved have been released.
Westbound traffic is being diverted at the La. Highway 415 to
U.S. Highway 190
