traffic is moving normally again here on i-22 as you can see behind me all that's left is a clean up now of a load of cotton that was cargo on an 18-wheeler. as we told you earlier today, the driver of the 18-wheeler dozed off lost control and turned his vehicle over. he was not hurt in the accident but traffic had to be diverted for several hours as the highway patrol mdot and other workers tried to clear the highway. the mississippi department of environmental quality was also on hand to ensure that the diesel fuel expelled from the accident was removed. the funeral they say was never a hazard but is really being removed to protect the environment. again both lanes are open on i 22 east near the 113 exit and have been open now since around 2 this afternoon. however the state highway patrol and m.dot officials are still here making sure that the scene is cleaned up properly. reporting live from i 22 near tremont on wayne hereford wtva nine news. at , you're getting
