Rig rollover causes life threatening injuries

Posted: Updated:

An 18-wheeler driver is in the hospital with life threatening injuries after a rollover accident.

According to the Caddo Parish Sheriff's deputies on scene, the driver of a salt water disposal truck rolled his rig just before 10:00 p.m. Sunday. He was attempting to turn from South Lakeshore Drive onto Highway 169.

Traffic was closed to that area for about two hours while a towing company moved the tractor trailer from the road. The rollover did not cause anything to spill from the tank. The truck's cabin was crushed in the crash.

The driver was flown by Life Air to University Health. He's said to have life threatening injuries. His condition is unknown at this time.

His name has not been released.
