BATON ROUGE – An overturned 18-wheeler has closed the off ramp from Plank Road onto Airline Highway in north Baton Rouge.

Curt Monte with the Baton Rouge Fire Department said the truck was carrying cardboard and other recycling material, and that a small fuel leak from the truck had been sealed.

EMS reported no injuries from the crash. Crews are on the scene working to upright the truck at this time, and hope to have it cleared within the hour.

Drivers are asked to avoid the area until it has been cleared.
