18 Wheeler involved in accident on I-10 in Sulphur

CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) - An 18-wheeler was involved in an accident today in Sulphur when a pick up truck cut it off on Interstate 10.

Sulphur Police responded to the accident around 6 a.m., when 32-year-old Jason McCleur of North Carolina cut off an 18-wheeler driving westbound near the highway 108 on-ramp.

Both trucks flipped off of the road, the 18 wheeler spilling it's cargo into a wooded area. A hazmat team was brought out to take care of the cargo, but Sulphur Police say they don't pose a threat to anyone in the area.

The driver of the 18-wheeler was transported to St. Pat's Hospital for minor injuries and McCleur was arrested for driving under the influence.

Traffic in that area is flowing now, but the highway 108 on and off ramps remain closed.
