I-20 Crash I-20 Crash

A bad accident on Interstate 20 sends several people to the hospital and closes the highway, bringing traffic to a standstill for hours.

It happened around 3:00 on I-20 westbound near Bolton.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol tells us an Isuzu Rodeo tried to change lanes, but there was another car in its blind-spot. The cars collided, and both spun out of control.

The Isuzu overturned, and several passengers were injured. One person had to be airlifted to UMC. Others were taken away by ambulance. Right now, no word on their identities or conditions.

The crash caused quite a traffic headache, too. Cars were backed-up for miles. Motorists were detoured off the interstate until the scene was cleared. It has since reopened.
