Westbound lanes of I-10 are closed after a two-vehicle crash this morning according to Louisiana State Police Trooper Thomas Gossen. One of the trucks involved is a welding truck, so authorities decided to close both westbound lanes as firefighters can put out the blaze. It happened near I-10 WB mile marker 68 in the Egan areas. Numerous callers say the backup has reached several miles in length.
