VICKSBURG, Miss. (WLBT) – A crane truck that caught fire at 5 p.m. Monday caused traffic headaches for drivers heading east from Vicksburg on I-20.
The Mississippi Department of Transportation reopened the highway to all eastbound lanes from Vicksburg to Bovina Tuesday afternoon after closing the lanes earlier in the day.
The huge vehicle blocked the right shoulder and part of the right lane, according to MHP Trooper 1st Class Darnika Mayfield.
Special heavy equipment from Louisiana was brought to the scene, she said, to lift the crane and haul it away.
