U.S. 61 in St. Francisville has been shut down in front of McDonald's in the city limits due to an overturned 18-wheeler. The 18-wheeler is loaded with concentrated bleach and it is leaking.

West Feliciana Sheriff Austin Daniels says Hazmat and DEQ are on the scene and a few homes around the area have been evacuated due to the strong odor.

They are diverting traffic off of U.S. 61 onto some side streets until the leak can be cleaned up.

Daniels expects the overturned truck to be there for a good part of the afternoon until they can get it moved.
