Fish guts spilling out of a tractor trailer involved in a wreck shut down two lanes of eastbound I-10 near Acadian Thruway during rush hour Thursday afternoon, officials said.
Baton Rouge police spokesman Cpl. Don Coppola said an SUV and a tractor trailer collided just before 4 p.m., but no one was injured.
The inside and center lanes of the highway were cordoned off, and pinkish clumps of dead fish remains were strewn across the concrete as of 4:45 p.m., producing an overwhelming odor.
Coppola said he didn’t have information on whether any citations were issued, as the crash is still under investigation.
