UPDATE: TRAFFIC UPDATE: I-10 Eastbound MM 69 is now OPEN to all traffic.

___________________________________________________________________

Two people are dead after a crash on I-10 East near the Jeff Davis/Acadia Parish Line.

It happened earlier this morning near mile marker 69.

Eastbound traffic is being rerouted to LA 97 at the Evangeline/Jennings exit. Westbound traffic is flowing, but it's slowed because of rubberneckers. That slowdown has traffic backed up to the Jennings exit. Drivers should avoid I-10 and take an alternate route.

The crash is under investigation.
