UPDATE: All lanes northbound and the right lane on the southbound side on I-49 have reopened Monday morning.

The Lafayette Fire Department Rescue and Hazmat crews responded to a major accident on I-49 near Pont des Mouton early Monday morning involving two vehicles. One of the vehicles, an 18 wheeler with a cargo tank carrying gasoline, was severely damaged. Hazmat team members assessed the damages and determined the fuel needed to be transferred to another truck before the crashed truck was removed. No word on any injuries.
