I-20 westbound lanes reopened

Posted: Updated:

VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - Transportation officials have reopened a portion of Interstate 20 that was briefly closed Wednesday after a truck overturned and dumped its load of logs on the highway.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation says no other vehicles were involved.

MDOT says the log truck overturned after hitting the approach rail of the I-20 east to U.S. 61 north bridge.

The truck's load of logs had locked all westbound traffic on I-20.
