Tuesday accidents – one inside city limits, one on Interstate 20
At approximately 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, a Chevrolet pick-up and Chevy Cavalier collided on Homer Road, causing emergency responders, Minden Police Department, Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office and Minden Fire Department to respond. The Cavalier’s driver and passenger were reportedly injured and left the scene via ambulance.
Webster Parish Sheriff’s Lt. Angela Cropper surveys damage to a tractor-trailer rig that laid down early Tuesday, closing down the eastbound lanes of Interstate 20 at the Dixie Inn ramp. The trailer reportedly turned over when its load of paper shifted while entering I-20 eastbound at mile marker 44 bringing interstate travel to a standstill. Vehicles were rerouted to U.S. Hwy. 80, causing traffic to back up at times as far as the first entrance of Camp Minden.
