Pickup rolls over after trying to avoid accident

Drivers along I-20 in Bossier City encountered a rolled-over pickup truck between Industrial Drive and I-220 Wednesday afternoon.

Mark Natale of the Bossier City Police Department said the pickup was going east on I-20 in the inside lane when it came up behind a car that had slowed down.

The woman driving the pickup slammed on the brakes and turned into the median to avoid hitting the car. The truck slid sideways in the median and rolled over twice, coming to rest upside down.

The driver and a male passenger were wearing their seatbelts, and both managed to crawl out of the wreck before emergency crews arrived.

Both were checked out at the scene by Bossier City Fire Department personnel and did not require transport to a hospital.

The driver of the truck was cited for no driver’s license and no proof of insurance.
