I-55 lanes north of Hwy. 463 cleared after crash

NEAR MADISON, MS (WLBT) - MDOT officials say traffic is flowing again on all lanes of Interstate 55 north of Highway 463 after a vehicle fire Thursday morning.

An Oldsmobile ran up under an 18-wheeler moving northbound on I-55 hauling 2,500 gallons of oil.

Madison police said the car was severely damaged, but because the truck driver quickly locked up his brakes, the woman driving the car got by with just minor scratches and cuts.

The truck driver was not hurt.

Police said the driver of the car was distracted by another wreck on the other side of I-55 and lost control.
