SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – E. Flournoy Lucas Road is back open after an 18-wheeler blocked the road for several hours.

Shreveport police say the vehicle was blocking the 500 block of E. Flournoy Lucas Rd.

The driver was traveling east on E. Flournoy Lucas Road when he hit the curb, police say. They also believe that the driver then over-corrected, which caused the 18-wheeler to overturn and spill silica sand on the road.

The Department of Environmental Quality was also on the scene while the accident was being investigated and cleaned up.
