Westbound lanes of I-10 close just past the Long Beach/County Farm accident after a crash Monday morning.

Westbound travelers on Interstate 10 experienced delays for about an hour Monday just past Exit 28, the exit to Long Beach and County Farm Road.

The crash occurred about 10:30 a.m., according to the Mississippi Department of Transportation. All lanes re-opened just before 11:30 a.m.

A white Chevrolet Silverado rear-ended a silver Toyota Sienna, Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Chase Elkins said.

Minor injuries were reported from people in both vehicles, he said.

Traffic cameras show it happened in an area where a third lane ends, with only two lanes of travel.

Traffic was allowed to pass on the right shoulder of the highway until one lane could be re-opened, Harrison County Fire Chief Pat Sullivan said.

A second crash occurred in the area, which further congested traffic, Elkins said. A vehicle overturned but no injuries were reported.
