18 Wheeler accident on I-20 early Friday

Posted: Updated:
There were not one, but 2 18-wheelers heading west on I-20 near the pines road exit when one of those trucks lost control.

Another diesel tried to avoid the first and also lost control of his 18 wheeler causing the trailer to flip over.

Thankfully no one was injured in that wreck. But it's just another reminder that when roads are wet, they're slick and drivers should proceed with caution.

There was a minor gas leak but no major threat because the overturned trailer had less than 50 gallons of gas in it's tank.

Sgt. Michael Lee Carter, Shreveport PD says the accident could have been worse, "No one was injured there were two vehicles involved, two large trucks, and everyone on the scene is safe."
