A multi-vehicle early morning in New Orleans made Monday not only blue but black as it left a 28-year-old woman in critical condition and caused hours of delays for drivers and commuters.. The accident occurred a little before 9:o’clock in the morning on 610 east Interstate  near West End, just a short distance past I-10 on-ramp in Metairie.

According to witnesses who were at the site, a gray sedan was seen crisscrossing several lanes of traffic before it was airlifted and came crashing into an 18-wheeler cab. It overturned and finally rested at the far side of the lane of I-610 East.

Due to the accident, commuters and motorists were delayed for hours as the highway was closed at the I-10 and I-610 junction. All lanes going eastbound to I-610 were also closed before Canal Boulevard. The congestion caused a long line of vehicles which went as far as Causeway Boulevard.

After 11:00 o’clock that morning, all wrecked vehicles were towed so lanes were reopened.

New Orleans Emergency Medical Services spokesperson confirmed that a woman of 28 years was moved in critical condition to an area hospital.

There were no other injuries reported. Authorities do not have any more information released about the accident.

Car Accident victims may be entitled to financial compensation for pain and suffering in addition to economic damages.
