FROM DPSAt approximately 10 a.m., the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Troopers responded to a commercial motor vehicle crash on Interstate 10 in Jefferson County.  The crash occurred just east of Taylor’s Bayou.

The preliminary DPS crash investigation indicates that a commercial motor vehicle was traveling westbound on Interstate 10.  The driver was traveling at an unsafe speed for the wet road conditions and lost control.  The vehicle traveled off the roadway and came to rest in the ditch.

This was a single vehicle crash with no injuries.

At this time, there is only one westbound lane open to traffic.  The roadway will remain partially closed for the next 5-6 hours while crews work to safely unload the wrecked vehicle.  Motorists are urged to find an alternate travel route.  Expect delays.
