State police are working to clear up an accident overnight involving two 18-wheelers on Interstate 12 near Denham Springs.

The crash happened just before 11 p.m. Monday.

One 18-wheeler caught fire and the other was carrying hazardous material.

Troopers say two big rigs were heading west on the interstate when one side-swiped the other, sending it into the woods before catching fire.

The driver of the truck that caught fire was able to escape the burning truck.

He suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital.

The burned truck was carrying auto parts.

The other 18-wheeler was carrying Potassium Hydroxide.

Interstate 12 westbound is currently closed between Range Avenue and O'Neal Lane.
