All lanes open at I-12 East Walker, traffic backed up due to accident

WALKER, LA (WAFB) - Congestion is heavy in both directions on I-12 just past Walker. LADOTD officials report that traffic on I-12 East is backed up to Juban.

The left lane had been blocked due to an accident involving a car- carrying tractor trailer.

The trailer flipped on its side after officials say the driver tried to slow down due to an accident at Satsuma. One car came loose from the trailer and it is in the median.

The driver has been taken to the hospital.

I-12 West is closed just past Satsuma at mile marker 17 due to vehicle recovery. Traffic is not passing through, and this incident has created a back up that is reaching Satsuma Road.
