A vehicle wrecked Saturday night near Geronimo and Paisano on the westbound lanes of Interstate 10.

The wreck occurred around 10:30 p.m. Those driving in the area were backed up for hours, the area remains closed off Sunday morning.

Special traffic investigators were called out to the area, according to police radio traffic. Special traffic investigators are called to severe traffic wrecks, or when a crash could turn deadly.
