FORREST COUNTY (WDAM) -

Mississippi Highway Patrol is responding to an incident with multiple 18-wheelers stuck in Forrest County U.S. 98 east on ramp from I -59 south. 

The ramp is closed, and drivers will need to use an alternate route. 

A truck driver called WDAM around 6:15 Wednesday morning and said he'd been stopped in the traffic for about five hours. 

"It's been slow all the way from Tennessee, now I'm just at a standstill," Alonzo said. 

At last check, MHP responded to over 67 incidents overnight in the midst of the wintry mix. 

Trooper Travis Luck of MHP Troop J said officials continue to advise people to stay off the roads.
