Traffic congestion on two eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 in Harrison County eased up after more than an hour Monday due to a collision near the Long Beach/County Farm Road exit.
The two left-hand lanes at Exit 28 were blocked for emergency response and cleanup following a collision reported about 1:45 p.m. by the Mississippi Department of Transportation.
The crash occurred on the overpass, Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Chase Elkins said.
No ambulances were requested, he said.
Never miss a local story.
“Most of the crashes have been in Harrison County and Pearl River County,” Elkins said.
He urged motorists to be careful. A heavy chance of rain is expected throughout the night.
Police dispatchers have been calling for first-responders and tow trucks throughout the day as rain has pummeled parts of the Mississippi Coast. Numerous fender-benders have been reported. In one collision, a power pole snapped.
