A Mooringsport teenager was hospitalized this morning after driving his truck into oncoming traffic and being hit by an 18-wheeler. The Caddo Sheriff’s Office says the 16-year-old was driving northbound in the 5500 block of North Market just before 6:30 this morning, when he ran off the road into a ditch. When he got back onto the road, he lost control and drove into southbound traffic, where his SUV was hit by a big rig. He was taken to LSU Hospital with serious injuries. The Louisiana Transportation Department had to clean up fuel from the roadway that had leaked from the 18-wheeler. All southbound lanes of Hwy 1 will be closed until the accident is cleaned up and investigated.
