BREAKING NEWS - Crash shuts down highway in Caddo Parish

Posted: Updated:
11am Update:

Cindy Chadwick with CPSO says an 18 wheeler carrying hazardous materials lost control and hit a tree on Hwy 79 between Hwy 80 and Buncombe Rd.  The materials are used to treat water and the truck was headed to a local water facility.  DEQ is on the scene as the chemicals spilled onto the street and into ditches. The area is sparsely populated so no evacuation order was issued. However, Hwy 79 will remain closed until crews have cleaned up the scene.

Highway 79 in Greenwood is shut down after an 18 wheeler accident this morning. The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office is working the crash and KTBS 3's Keristen Holmes is on the scene. Stay with us for updates.
