JEFF DAVIS PARISH, La. -

I-10 West is now open following a fatal crash in Jeff Davis Parish. 

As of 6 p.m., three victims were confirmed dead, and two others were transported to Lafayette General Medical Center in critical condition, a Troop D spokesman said. 

The interstate was closed between Welsh and Lacassine after a car traveling eastbound crossed the median into the westbound lane for unknown reasons. As a result, the car collided with a truck carrying a flatbed.

There were four occupants in the car, and three were pronounced dead on scene. The fourth victim, along with the driver of the truck, were transferred to the hospital.  

Congestion has cleared on I-10 West from mile marker 53 (past Welsh) to mile marker 51 (before Lacassine).
