As of 5:40 PM traffic was still being routed off of i10 and then back on after accident scene.
Wednesday 2pm – Traffic is backed up on I-10 eastbound at the MLK overpass after two 18 wheelers collided and Orange Police say it could be for a while.
Authorities on the scene said an 18 wheeler carrying pellets had some kind of problem and had attempted to pull over on the shoulder on the top of the overpass. The driver was getting his cones to set out when another big rig clipped him in the back. Both trucks had full loads. Fortunately only minor injuries were reported.
At times, one lane of traffic was flowing but traffic will be stopped during clean up.
