CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

The southbound I49 on-ramp at Highway 71 in North Caddo Parish has been shut down while work to clear an 18-wheeler rollover wreck continues.

The rollover happened around 9:30 a.m.. The driver of the Tango Transport truck loaded with scrap paper says he was heading to Campti when he was forced to swerve to miss a couple of 4-wheelers that were crossing the roadway in front of him.

No one was hit, but he says he was going too fast when he hit the I49 exchange and rolled over.

The driver was not injured, and it's not clear who was on the 4-wheelers. The driver told deputies it was a survey crew, but a grass-cutting crew was also reportedly in the area.

The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating the cause of the wreck.

Crews are still working to offload the paper and right the truck in order to clear the wreck.
