Two traffic crashes caused quite a mess on I-10 Wednesday. Lafayette Police say they both happened in the Eastbound lane of the interstate, between the exits of North University Avenue and I-49.

Corporal Paul Mouton says the first crash happened at approximately 12:30 p.m. involving two trucks going the opposite direction. One of the drivers went to an area hospital with moderate injuries. The second crash, which happened right after the first one, involved an 18-wheeler and 3 vehicles, all traveling eastbound.

I-10 eastbound was completely shut down until the vehicles could be cleared. At 1:52 pm, Corporal Mouton said the interstate was re-opened. Both crashes remain under investigation.
