Four people injured in seven-car pileup

WEST BATON ROUGE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Four people were injured during a seven-car pileup Tuesday evening.

None of the injuries are life threatening, according to West Baton Rouge Parish Deputy Cliff Ivey.

Ivey says the injured were taken to four area hospitals, a couple with injuries to the face.

The crash happened around 4 p.m. on I-10 westbound near mile marker 142, a few miles from the Grosse Tete exit, causing traffic headaches for hours. It involved three 18-wheelers and four vehicles.

Ivey says the crash occurred when the driver of one of the 18-wheelers hit a car.  The driver was given a ticket for failure to maintain control.
