The accident happened just before midnight on the overpass of I-49 south and La. Hwy 170. Deputies say high winds caused the tractor trailer to overturn and block both lanes of traffic. The truck also leaked oil onto the roadway.   The driver suffered minor injuries in this accident.

Crews have been on the scene throughout the night to clear up the roadway and get the traffic flowing again. I-49 northbound lanes are open. The southbound lanes remain closed until further notice.

Highway 170 runs between Gilliam and Vivian.
