BATON ROUGE - Traffic officials closed a portion of I-10 West at Acadian in Baton Rouge this afternoon when an 18-wheeler stalled and stopped across several lanes of traffic.

Traffic cameras showed someone trying to physically push the truck's cab back out of the center lane of traffic.

Congestion had reached Siegen Lane on I-10 and Drusilla on I-12 by the time the interstate reopened around 6:15 p.m., according to DOTD.
