IBERVILLE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Officials said a temporary guardrail remains in place at the site of a crash that shut down I-10 West on the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge on Wednesday.
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) reported a permanent fix on the rail will be done at a later date. Officials added it was the only damage inspectors found on the bridge.
According to Louisiana State Police, the guardrail was crushed when one 18-wheeler hit another and a truck near Butte La Rose. The crash caused the roadway to be closed for several hours.
Troopers said the driver of the pickup suffered moderate injuries, while a passenger in one of the big rigs had minor injuries.
