Driver extracted through windshield after crash on I-12 in Livingston overnight

LIVINGSTON, La. — Eastbound lanes of I-12 between Livingston and Walker were closed for several hours overnight after a crash involving an overturned 18-wheeler, the Livingston Parish Police Department said Thursday.

A Livingston Police Officer and a Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Deputy removed the driver of the truck through the windshield, police posted on Facebook.

Police said the driver was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. It appeared the driver was carrying produce which was scattered along the interstate. Crews removed “thousands of pounds” of cargo to get the truck upright and out of the road, police said.

Louisiana State Police, Walker Police Department and the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office assisted with the closure.

Police were able to reopen the busy stretch of I-12 just ahead of the morning rush. People reported sitting in standstill traffic for hours early Thursday.
