BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A small portion of the LA 1 service road by the Walmart in Port Allen is closed due to an overturned 18-wheeler.

Deputies with the West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office say no one was injured in the incident.

The 18-wheeler made a sharp turn when turning onto the service road from a business and it caused the tractor trailer to overturn into a ditch, according to deputies.

The stretch of the LA 1 service road between the Waffle House and the Red Roof in is currently closed as crews work to remove the 18-wheeler from the side of the roadway.

Deputies recommend drivers take Phillips Lane to Millls Lane to get to the Walmart in Port Allen.
