Sunday the Vicksburg Police was busy working an accident on I-20 west, involving an 18-wheeler.

Sgt. Bill Jeffers with the Vicksburg Police Department said authorities received the call around 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

The accident was on I-20 west, just under the Indiana Ave. Exit.

Vicksburg Police Chief Walter Armstrong said the interstate is now open. The interstate had been closed for several hours.

Chief Armstrong said the driver of the 18-wheeler lost control, causing the vehicle to overturn. He was temporarily trapped in the truck.

Jeffers said the unidentified driver sustained minor injuries and was taken to Merit Health by Vicksburg/Fire Ambulance.

Authorities tell us the truck was hauling bales of cotton.

Armstrong said the interstate will have to be closed again at some point to clean up the remainder of the debris.
