This Morning on WLBT: Overnight accident closes I-55

Good morning!

A FedEx truck ran off the highway overnight, shutting down part of Interstate 55 near downtown Jackson. It happened in the southbound lanes just before the Fortification Street bridge. All southbound traffic was being forced to exit at Fortification, but drivers could get back on the highway using the southbound entrance ramp from Fortification. That didn't cause significant delays overnight, but it could be a mess for the morning commute. Jewell Hillery will be on the scene with updates on the cleanup, starting as soon as we sign-on this morning.

Jackson police are making progress in their investigation of the shooting death of a Mississippi Emergency Management Agency employee at a Waffle House. We'll have the latest on their findings shortly after 6:00 this morning.

And at 6:30, we'll tell you about construction work on a major thoroughfare in the metro area that could cause some delays.

Join Joy Redmond, First Alert Meteorologist Julia Weiden and me on WLBT from 5-7 this morning and on Fox 50 from 7-9!
