BATON ROUGE - A flipped 18-wheeler blocked all lanes of I-110 South for several hours Monday.

The truck turned over in the turn at North 22nd Street near Capitol Access around 1:30 p.m. Police said no one was injured, and the highway was reopened just before 6 p.m.

BRPD said the truck was carrying rolls of paper weighing about 6,400 pounds each. The load shifted, causing the box on the back to separate from the trailer and flipping it on its side.

Police closed the interstate at the Chippewa exit to detour traffic off the interstate for the nearly five hours it took to clear the highway.
