One vehicle wreck delays traffic on Eason

TUPELO – Traffic will be delayed in the east bound lane of Eason Boulevard as it crosses under Highway 45 until about 1:15 after a truck pulling a tractor collided with the underside of the bridge.

The truck was pulling a front-end loading tractor and the tractor’s boom was raised to high to clear the bridge according to Cpl. Phillip Sanderson of the Tupelo Police Department.

Traffic is limited to one lane on the east bound side while emergency crews work to clean up the tractor’s spilled hydraulic fluid.
