Update: I-12 westbound near the Holden exit has re-opened after an 18-wheeler accident.
A front tire blew out and caused the 18-wheeler to swerve off the road around 4 p.m. The accident caused the front axle to break. No one was injured.
Louisiana State Police had to shut down both lanes while two wreckers tried to get the 18-wheeler back on the interstate. The wreckers were having difficulty towing the 18-wheeler due to its heavy load.
