Troopers say four 18 wheelers were involved in the crash that shut down the Basin Bridge this afternoon. Troopers say it happened around 4:47 p.m., near Whiskey Bay. Investigators are still on scene to determine what caused the crash. Troopers say three of the drivers survived the crash; the fourth died at the scene. Hazmat crews are now on the scene as a precaution, as investigators say they are still determining what materials were inside the trailers. Currently, I-10 is still closed in both directions while crews clean up the scene. DOTD previously opened the Westbound left lane of the basin; that has since been closed.
