Commuters are currently experiencing heavy delays on I-10 near the I-10 and US90 merge due to a multi-vehicle accident and vehicle fire Thursday morning.

The accident happened westbound (or Lakebound) and is affecting traffic in both directions at this time due to rubbernecking.

The fire has since been put out.

NOPD has confirmed there are injuries, but cannot confirm the extent of the injuries at this time.
