A wreck involving two semi-trucks early this morning (Friday, March 18, 2022) forced law enforcement to close down I-20 eastbound in Shreveport at Hearne Avenue. The accident happened shortly before 4:30 am this morning near Greenwood Road heading eastbound on I-20.

As you can tell, first responders had a big job on their hands this morning as they worked with area wreckers to clear the wreck.

Clearly, getting these two semi-trucks out of the ditch was quite the process.

Yes, that's a Rottweiler for a co-pilot and the pup is doing just fine, even after having a 'ruff' morning. Our contact on site said they made sure to give him a sausage biscuit to help him deal with the trauma of the wreck.

According to officers on the scene, I-20 eastbound at Hearne Avenue will remain closed for the next few hours as they work to get the second semi-truck out and clean the mud off of the interstate to help prevent any further accidents.

Even though the wreck impacted the morning commute for many drivers in Shreveport, I think we can all be grateful that no one was hurt and that the situation is 'fixable.'

Louisiana Vampire Author Anne Rice's New Orleans Mansion is For Sale

Before famed Louisiana author Anne Rice died in December of 2021, she brought us an incredible wealth of literature. Starting in 1976 with her first published book Interview with the Vampire, Rice captured the imagination of fans around the world. In total she penned 36 novels, including four under the nom de plume A.N. Roquelaure, two more under a different pen name (Anne Rampling), one with her son, Christopher Rice, and one non-fiction book. Her success brought her enough money to purchase this historic (and reportedly haunted) mansion in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Now, this magnificent piece of literary history is up for sale - and it's even been reduced. The price has been slashed by $600,000, and now sits just below the $4 million mark.

If you like what you see, and you'd like to live like the Louisiana Vampire Queen Anne Rice did - just visit the realtor's page and put in an offer!
