LIVINGSTON PARISH, La. (WAFB) - A man was airlifted to a hospital in serious condition Friday morning after his truck went airborne and knocked out a utility pole before landing on top of another vehicle.

The man was driving north on Highway 16 in Livingston Parish when he ran off the road, Louisiana State Police Trooper Taylor Scrantz said.

The man’s vehicle landed on top of a truck parked at a business near Hebron Baptist Church on Highway 16 just south of Hillon Hood Road. The parked truck was not occupied.

Highway 16 is currently closed at Juban Road, with traffic being detoured. Highway 16 north is being diverted to Southpoint Road and Highway 16 south is being diverted to Whittington Drive.

Utility crews quickly arrived on the scene to work on restoring power to the area.
