An 18-wheeler out of California attempted to enter I-20 East using the exit ramp presumably due to the construction on Clay Street.

Just after 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, an 18-wheeler entered the exit ramp onto I-20 East. The Vicksburg Daily News reported the event in a live video.

The 18-wheeler was confused by the road closure on Clay Street at I-20 and instead of turning around entered the exit ramp. A black sedan followed the 18-wheeler the wrong way up the ramp and made contact with the 18-wheeler.
