A fatal accident has shut down part of I-20 in Bienville Parish. I-20 eastbound at Mile Marker 55 is blocked off and traffic is being diverted Highway 80.
According to Louisiana State Police, traffic was backed up due to an earlier accident when a Ford F-150 pickup truck stopped behind a semi-truck was hit by another simi-truck, forcing it under the semi-truck in front of it.
The driver of the pick up truck died. The name of the driver was not released pending notification of his family.
