18 Wheeler Overturns, Blocks I-20 West

Posted: Updated:
Jackson -

Due to an overturned 18-wheeler, all westbound lanes of Interstate 20, just past the Highway 18 exit (Exit 48), are temporarily closed to allow responders to clear the affected area.

The driver of the 18 wheeler has minor injuries, and the truck is possibly leaking fuel. They are waiting for a wrecker to help determine if the tank has been punctured.

Motorists should expect traffic delays in this area and should seek alternate routes if possible.

MDOT will update motorists as information becomes available.
