NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - The eastbound lanes of the I-10 Twin Span have reopened after being closed due to a Friday morning accident involving an 18-wheeler and a pickup truck.

The crash blocked all three lanes and left traffic at a standstill for hours. It happened near the crossover around 9 a.m.

Crews had to bring a crane out to help remove the wreckage. The bridge reopened to traffic around 1:30 p.m.

Traffic was backed up for miles and diverted at the Irish Bayou exit, but appeared to be running smoothly shortly after the interstate reopened.
