I-220 westbound over Cross Lake Bridge is back open after a multi-car crash Tuesday morning.

Police say it happened just after 7:20 a.m.

According to Louisiana Department of Transportation & Development, traffic was diverted to Shreveport Blanchard Highway following the accident.

We're still working to get information on what caused the crash we're hearing that a car may have hit an 18-wheeler, sending it sliding on the bridge.   LA DOTD reported that congestion  reached North Market Street earlier.

No injuries have been reported.

Cross Lake Bridge has signs warning drivers that the bridge may ice in cold weather. According to Stormtracker 12 Meteorologist Ron Young, the temperature on Cross Lake Bridge at the time of the crash was about 27 degrees but he does not think that is a factor since there was not precipitation over the bridge at that time.
