SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Two separate wrecks kept Shreveport police and firefighters busy for part of Friday morning.

The first, a single car rollover crash, happened around 4 a. m. on N. Hearne Avenue near Aero Drive. 

Police told KSLA News 12 a 37 year old woman lost control of her car, causing it to roll over and land in a ditch.

Although the car was severely damaged, paramedics say the woman's injuries appeared to be minor.

Police are investigating whether she may have been drinking.

Around 5:30 a. m., another driver reportedly ran away after a non-related crash involving a car and an 18 wheeler.

Police say the car ran into the big rig at Linwood and Interstate 20 east.

It's unclear if anyone was hurt in that crash.
