Crowley Police and fire report that a major accident occurred on I-10 westbound near Exit 80, Saturday morning. A SUV collided with a semi trailer truck and another vehicle and was reported the reason for the destruction.

All lanes are now open, but westbound lanes of I-10 were closed for personnel vehicles at around 8 A.M until 11:19 A.M.

They say one person was ejected and two were extracted and another also in critical condition. One person involved in the accident was a child under the age of two.
