Driver ticketed after load of plywood falls from truck on I-10, crushing 2 cars
BATON ROUGE - One person was hurt and taken to the hospital after two cars were crushed by a load of plywood that fell off of an 18-wheeler on I-10 East Monday.
The wreck closed I-10 as it veers right from the New Bridge, in the notorious stretch that is one lane.
Sources said one person was hurt but their injuries were non life-threatening.
The driver, 34-year-old Sergio Suarez-Hernandez, was issued a ticket for careless driving and disregard for controls.

Video from the WBRZ tower cam, perched about 700 feet above Old South Baton Rouge, showed a small car smashed and nearly covered with plywood. The panels were lost by a truck that pulled over further down the interstate.
The snafu comes days after a pickup truck toppled off the other side of the interstate in the same area.
I-10 E was closed at the I-10/I-110 merge, diverting eastbound traffic to I-110 N, for about three hours. It re-opened just before 5 p.m. Monday evening.
