Major accident in Minden

MINDEN, LA (KSLA)- Traffic was backed up last night for drivers traveling on Interstate-20 eastbound near Minden because of a wreck involving a big-rig and two other cars.

The eastbound lanes were closed near Minden after the accident. Louisiana State Police say a car that was trying to merge back into traffic struck a big-rig that was parked on the shoulder.

This caused the vehicle to spin out of control and strike another car. Both drivers of the two cars had to be air-lifted to the hospital with serious injuries. No word on any injuries for the driver of the 18-wheeler.
