I-10 reopens following accident in Beaumont


One person was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries following an accident involving two tractor trailers.

The accident happened just after 9 a.m. in the 1000 block of Interstate 10 near Louisiana Street.

A statement issued by the Beaumont Police Department said oil and fuel were spilled on the roadway and an environmental team was called to clean the accident site.  Eastbound I-10 was closed until around 11 a.m. while the fluid spill was cleaned.

A dog belonging to one of the truck drivers was injured in the accident.  The dog was covered with a blanket to calm its nerves. 

No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
