A crash involving two trucks Friday afternoon closed down traffic for a brief amount of time on Interstate 10 eastbound at the Mississippi River Bridge, said Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sgt. Donald Stone.
All lanes were closed at first, but the far left lane was re-opened by around 3:15 p.m., Stone said. The right lane was still closed as of about 3:45 p.m., Stone said.
There were no fatalities or injuries, and one truck was carrying horses, Stone said.
A dump truck going eastbound in the center lane swerved to avoid traffic and hit the horse trailer, Stone said. The horse trailer was forced over the right side of the bridge and was partially hanging over the bridge, Stone said.
Two passengers in the horse trailer were trapped momentarily but were eventually helped out, Stone said.
The driver of the dump truck, David Holder of North Carolina, was cited for failing to maintain control, Stone said.
