All lanes on Interstate 12 eastbound between Airline Highway and Sherwood Forest Boulevard have been reopened after a traffic accident closed them for a brief period after 2 p.m.
A semitrailer was traveling westbound on I-12 around 2:20 p.m. when the driver lost control and crashed into the median, said Cpl. L’Jean McKneely, a Baton Rouge police spokesman.
A crane being hauled by the semitrailer collided with a light pole on the median, causing it to fall and block two traffic lanes, McKneely said.
The driver was not injured in the crash, he said.
