Morning commute marred by I-10 accident in Beaumont

An early morning accident on Interstate 10 in Beaumont created some traffic headaches for morning commuters. 

Beaumont police say at about 5:30 a.m., an 18-wheeler collided with another car in the westbound lanes of Interstate 10 near the MLK Boulevard overpass. The collision left the 18 wheeler high-centered over the center median and knocked over a number of light poles into the eastbound lanes.

Police had to close down both lanes of the interstate to clean the accident up. At last word, authorities expected to have both lanes reopened by 10 a.m..

No injuries were reported.
