Overturned 18-wheeler shuts down I-12

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Wake up and do your stretching! We've been talking about it for a couple of weeks and now it's finally here. The LeBlanc's 99 Second Supermarket Shopping Spree. Our winner, Jennifer Vaughns, says she's ready to hit the aisles and start tossing stuff into her cart. How much will she get, how much will end up on the floor, how long will the cleanup take? What's the first thing you would go after? It is unknown how long I-12 will be blocked due to that overturned 18-wheeler, but find out about any other road problems with our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras and if you run into any backups while driving, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
