I-10 West has been reopened after a tragic accident that left one person dead, according to Louisiana State Police officials.

Jeanne Leiby, 46, was thrown from her car after losing control of it.  State Police say she was not wearing a seatbelt.  She was taken to an area hospital where she later died.

The single-car crash happened about a mile onto the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge.

Officials had shut down I-10 West at LA 415 in Port Allen for nearly three hours while the scene was cleared.
