Police believe 5-vehicle crash on I-12 possibly weather related

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Emergency crews responded to a five-vehicle chain reaction crash on I-12 Friday morning.

The wreck happened on I-12 West just before the I-10/I-12 Merge. The accident caused two lanes on I-12 West to be blocked.

The Baton Rouge Police Department reported the crash was possibly weather-related as the roadways were wet from rain that fell throughout the morning. Cpl. L'Jean McKneely said no injuries were reported and no one was cited. He added four of the five vehicles had to be towed away.

The Baton Rouge Fire Department said a hazardous materials crew was called to the scene because a truck involved in the crash was carrying pharmaceutical materials. The crew determined the items posed no threat.
