BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KSLA) — Part of a northwest Louisiana roadway was closed for up to five hours while crews cleaned up the site of an 18-wheeler accident, authorities say.

The wreck involving a big rig hauling scrap metal happened on Louisiana 154 near Louisiana Highway 157 north of the Bossier Parish community of Elm Grove.

It was reported about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12.

First responders on the scene said the tractor-trailer rig overturned when the load’s weight shifted.

No one was injured.

The roadway was reopened about 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Crews are expected to return Wednesday morning to get the rest of debris out of the ditch along the roadside.
