Mattress causes 6-vehicle wreck on Mississippi Bridge

Posted: Updated:

DELTA, La. (KNOE 8 News) - A mattress that was not tied down properly to a vehicle, fell onto Interstate 20 causing a 6-vehicle pile up.

Delta Marshal David Beckham tells KNOE that a vehicle driving westbound on Interstate 20 on the bridge over the Mississippi River, lost a mattress it was carrying.  Beckham says one car was able to avoid the mattress, but others weren't. A total of 6 vehicles were involved in the pile up. Remarkably, no injuries were reported.

Beckham says all lanes are open and traffic is flowing.

The driver carrying the mattress was cited for having an unsecure load. Other drivers involved were not ticketed, as the wreck was considered unavoidable.
