Traffic is backed up in an area of Interstate 10 after a car flipped on its side onto a guardrail of an overpass.

The wreck occurred shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday at the top of the eastbound overpass of County Farm Road in Long Beach. Traffic has backed up in the area as emergency crews work to remove the vehicle and wreckage from the road, Harrison County Fire Marshal Pat Sullivan said.

All of the occupants are out of the vehicle and safe. Sullivan said there are no injuries.

The wreck has shut down one lane on the eastbound side of I-10.
