Overturned garbage truck at Walker South Rd. Roundabout

WALKER - On Friday morning a garbage truck overturned at the Walker South Rd. roundabout. 

Around 8:30 a.m. the incident had the right lane blocked in the south roundabout on LA 447 Northbound to I-12 East (Walker).

Apparently the truck was going a little too fast and upon exiting I-12, slowly rolled over onto its side. As a result, a small quantity of trash fell out of the vehicle, which took some time to clear. 

Authorities say the accident did not result in any injuries and the roundabout remained open. It took about three hours for the wreck to be cleared and for all lanes to be reopened.
