TV vehicle crashes into bridge on I-10, no injuries reported


A car owned by WLOX-TV crashed into a bridge on Interstate 10 Monday, causing a traffic jam in westbound lanes but no injuries.

The car, believed to be a Toyota Prius, left the highway before it struck the bridge over the Wolf River, Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Chase Elkins said.

The 10:24 a.m. crash occurred in a right-hand lane west of the Long Beach/County Farm Road exit, also known as Exit 28.

An investigation continues to determine the cause, Elkins said.

“I don’t know how it happened or why the wreck happened,” he said.
