All lanes open on I-10 East past Highland after serious accident

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - All lanes are now open on I-10 east between Highland Road and the Prairieville exit. Earlier, lanes were temporarily closed due to a serious accident.

A medical helicopter had arrived on the scene, then later departed. Police said that there were serious injuries, and they were waiting on wreckers to clear any vehicles involved in the crash.

If you are still experiencing any delays, traffic advisors say motorists can exit Interstate 10 at Highland Road and use Airline Highway as an alternate route.
