It also involved one passenger car, and there were reports two were taken to the hospital.

It tied up traffic on the interstate in both directions, but the eastbound lanes opened by mid-morning and the westbound lanes were expected to open yesterday afternoon.

This normally busy interstate tie-up caused detours, which also then backed up with traffic. When heading out to Baton Rouge via Interstate 49, be sure to check on the roadways.
