KENNER, LA (WVUE) -

Interstate 10 headed westbound is now open after a major crash blocked all lanes.

The accident happened around 11:30 p.m. and involved four tanker trucks.

The crash happened just past the I-10/I-310 split. 

State Police said the accident stems from an earlier crash, in which a driver was headed in the wrong direction on the Spillway. Troopers say that driver crashed causing backups. 

In the traffic from that crash, State Police say the four tanker trucks somehow got into an accident, which resulted in the closure around 11:30 Wednesday night. 

Troopers were forcing drivers to get off of I-10 West at I-310. They say there's just minor injuries in both crashes.
