Multiple accidents on I-55 in Jackson

On Thursday night, police investigated several accidents near Elton Road on I-55 North. An 18 wheeler hit a small car and its cargo caught fire.

Firefighters had put out the flames but evidence of the fire was clearly visible on the trailer and tires of the 18 wheeler.  Apparently the big rig hit the car just south of Elton Road and came to a stop north of the point of impact.  

No word on any injuries.

We were told at least six different cars were involved in accidents on this stretch of I-55.
