Heavy delays due to wrecks on Airline near I-12 Tuesday
BATON ROUGE - Airline Highway slowed to a crawl between I-12 and Coursey Tuesday morning due to two wrecks that are likely connected.
A crash happened at the intersection of Airline Highway and Dawnadele Avenue, then a second wreck happened at the Airline/I-12 on-ramp. At first, it was reported a person walking may have been hit, but authorities later learned no pedestrian was struck.
