IBERVILLE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - I-10 West reopened Thursday afternoon following a morning crash involving two 18-wheelers that closed the roadway for about half the day. 

Louisiana State Police reported the accident happened just past Grosse Tete around 8:30 a.m. The roadway was cleared around 3 p.m. 

Troopers said one big rig rear-ended another and another vehicle was also involved. Troopers said there were no serious injuries in the wreck.

Tpr. Jared Sandifer with LSP said the driver of the tractor trailer that hit the other one was cited for following too closely.

He added firefighters were called to the scene to clean up the diesel spill that resulted from the crash and to separate the two 18-wheelers.
