If Swan Lake Road is a part of your drive home, you may want to choose route this afternoon.

Bossier City Police have closed Swan Lake Road from Shed Road to Hazel Jones Road due to the mess left when a tractor-trailer loaded with scrap metal overturned.  The mishap occurred around 12:30 this afternoon as the driver turned right from Shed Road to go north on Swan Lake Road.  The load shifted causing the truck to tip over and strew its contents, which included two wrecked vehicles, onto the road.  Swan Lake at Shed Rd. is expected to be closed for 3 to 4 hours as wrecker crews right the rig and clean up the the spilled scrap.

There was good news from the accident scene--the driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.  However, his pocketbook will be in some pain as he was cited for hauling an unsecured load.
