Semi loses crane, knocks down light pole on I-12
BATON ROUGE- I-12 was a nightmare for many drivers Wednesday afternoon after multiple lanes closed due to an incident involving a light pole and a boom truck near Sherwood Forrest.
Lanes were blocked in both directions until just after 4 p.m.
A WBRZ News 2 crew on the scene said it appears the truck had a blowout, lost control and somehow the crane swung into traffic knocking down a pole as it crossed the interstate median.
