JACKSON COUNTY -- Traffic is backed up on Interstate 10 in west Jackson County due to a two-vehicle crash with spilled oil on the road.

The crash, reported at 12:39 p.m., occurred near the 66 mile marker.

The right lane is blocked in the westbound lanes of travel and is expected to remain closed until about 2:30 p.m., said Mississippi Highway Patrol Trooper Chase Elkins.
