SHREVEPORT-BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Authorities in Shreveport and Bossier are working multiple crashes along interstates 20 and 49 Tuesday morning.

The calls started coming in just after 7 a.m.

A minor crash with injuries was reported on I-20 eastbound at the Spring Street exit in Shreveport. Traffic was reportedly backed up to Linwood Avenue.

In Bossier City police spokesman Mark Natale says officers are working a crash at I-20 west at Old Minden Road where injuries were reported and another at I-20 east at Hamilton Road without injuries.

Traffic was backed up to the Red River Bridge.

Louisiana State Police Troop G are working a crash on I-20 westbound at milepost 36 near Haughton with three vehicles.

It was reported to Freon tanks, like the ones your AC man uses on your home AC, which are not leaking, according to Troop G spokesman Trooper Glenn Younger.

Minor injuries were reported and the left lane is still blocked for the wreckers to recover the vehicle.

The right lane is open says Younger.

Shreveport police are also working a crash where a pregnant woman reportedly spun out of control on I-49 south.

Police say a dark blue 2017 Nissan Versa spun out and hit the wall just past the Kings Highway exit.

Traffic was reportedly congestion for about a mile.

Drivers going southbound on I-49 are advised to exit at Kings to avoid the area.

The fire department was on scene to check the woman out. All drivers are asked to use caution in the rain.
