I-20 East exit ramp onto 3132 closed after wreck
An 18-wheeler overturned on Highway 3132 Thursday morning, causing the closure of the ramp from Interstate 20 East onto the highway for several hours.
Cpl. Marcus Hines, public information officer for the Shreveport Police Department, said the truck was carrying a load of potatoes. The cleanup took several hours.
The truck’s two occupants were taken to a local hospital with what he said were minor injuries.
The cause of the rollover accident is still under investigation.
There have been a number of truck rollovers in recent weeks, but Hines could not say what could explain the increase.
“I don’t know if it’s mechanical failure, I don’t know if it’s driver error, I really don’t know what’s contributing to them. It could very well be a combination of both,” he said.
