PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Just one lane of traffic is open on I-20 westbound in Rankin County after an 18-wheeler flipped between Pearl and Brandon. The 18-wheeler which was traveling westbound overturned after trying to avoid hitting another 18-wheeler. The accident happened just before 11 P.M. Saturday, before the Pearson Road exit.

Police said the driver of the wrecked big rig was walking around when they arrived on scene, but the driver was still transported to the hospital.  Two lanes of I-20 westbound were shut down following the accident. Officials aren't sure when they'll re-open.
