Breaking news for Bossier City and Bossier Parish.
UPDATED 8:29 a.m. 9/17/2021
I-20 West at Airline Drive was closed early Friday morning due to a diesel fuel spill from a disabled semi-truck. Traffic is now flowing at the scene.
Louisiana State Police say the traffic mess was the result of ‘multiple accidents’ near the Airline Dr. exit. At one point, DOTD reported a traffic backup on the interstate stretching 4 miles.
There were minor injuries related to the accidents, but no one was transported to a hospital, BCPD Lt. Bart R. Cavanaugh tells BossierNow.
“We did have a marked unit hit but the officer was not in it at the time,” Cavanaugh added.
