A double-trailer 18-wheeler jack-knifed on I-20 East just before the Gallatin Street exit around 1 a.m.

The incident caused a traffic back-up on I-20 East to Terry Road. It also impacted traffic that was merging onto I-20 from I-55.

Our crew did see an ambulance at the scene. There’s no word on if anyone was hurt.

We’re working with Jackson Police to find out what caused this crash.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation says the accident will take two hours to clear.
