Truck jackknifes on I-49, avoid area if possible

I-49 crash

A reader provided the following information and photos:

This is about a mile north of Exit 99 to Boyce on I-49. This 18-wheeler was apparently going southbound and jackknifed, but somehow the trailer tore in two.
The Times contacted LSP Troop E who confirmed there were no injuries and no other vehicles were involved. The big rig completely jackknifed around until the cab hit the trailer. It came to rest on the barrier between the north and south bound interstate lanes.

State Police advise one lane is closed, and it will remain closed approximately two hours, for crewsto extract the big rig.

More information as it becomes available.
