Update: Eastbound I-10 lanes open in Jackson County, expect delays westbound

Eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 in Jackson County are open again after crews cleared a vehicle that had caught fire near the Franklin Creek Road exit.

But drivers traveling westbound on Interstate 10 near the 72-mile marker should also prepare for traffic delays after a separate wreck, Mississippi Highway Patrol Spokesman Chase Elkins.

Elkins said the accident involves two vehicles, and some people were injured.

The extent of their injuries is not yet known, he said.

The vehicle fire in the eastbound lanes occurred after a wreck. It was not immediately clear if anyone was in the vehicle when it caught fire.
