SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Authorities had to shut down Interstate 20 Wednesday evening for about a half mile to the I-49 interchange as they worked to clear an accident on the Spring Street ramp in downtown Shreveport.

The wreck involved two pickup trucks and two tractor-trailer rigs, a Shreveport Police spokesman says. No one suffered a significant injury.

Authorities say they got the call about 9 p.m. at the intersection of Spring Street just off the Interstate 20 exit. At least one lane on Spring Street had been closed.

But the resulting major traffic tie-up leading off the ramp forced authorities to divert eastbound traffic starting at I-49.

A fire dispatcher says five units have reported to the scene.
