A morning wreck has left a busy intersection closed. Shreveport police say an 18-wheeler hit a utility pole at the intersection of Wallace Lake Road and East Bert Kouns, causing wires to block the lanes.

Westbound traffic on East Bert Kouns is being diverted onto Ellerbe Road while eastbound traffic is being routed onto Wallace Lake Road. Police supervisors are saying the clean-up effort will probably take most of the day.
