SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The King Highway entrance to I-49 South is expected to reopen shortly after a wreck involving several vehicles Tuesday afternoon.

SPD Cpl. Marcus Hines says the chain-reaction crashes appear to have happened after one driver stopped on the interstate and tried to move something out of the roadway. Traffic slowed, and several cars ran into the back of one another as a result.

A total of 8 cars were involved. 1 person was taken to Willis Knighton Pierremont with minor injuries.

All lanes of traffic are open and traffic is flowing. The on-ramp to I-49 S is expected to reopen by 6 p.m.
