FOLLOWING IS THE ORIGINAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE ACCIDENT
It’s expected to be at Friday evening before traffic is allowed back on southbound I-55 after a late morning accident involving two vehicles and a tractor-trailer truck.
Southaven Police say the accident took place just before 11:15 a.m. on I-55 at the Horn Lake Creek bridge. The bridge was struck and the tractor-trailer flipped over on its side.
Police say there were no injuries but the collision forced the closure of the interstate, which is now closed between Stateline Road and Church Road.
Hazmat crews are in the process of removing the tractor-trailer truck.
Drivers who would normally use the roadway are reminded to use an alternate route.
