LAPLACE, La. (WVUE) - Airline Highway was closed in both directions Wednesday morning (Dec. 8), as authorities worked to investigate and clear a possibly fatal accident involving an 18-wheeler and a car, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff Mike Tregre said.
The accident occurred shortly after 6 a.m. on U.S. 61 (Airline Highway) at Windsor Street, near the River Forest subdivision, Tregre said.
The two-vehicle wreck under foggy conditions caused serious injuries to one occupant, who appeared unlikely to survive, Tregre said.
