WALKER - A crash involving an 18-wheeler forced law enforcement to shut down a portion of I-12 East in Livingston Parish late Friday night.
The closure started around 8:30 p.m., when authorities closed off I-12 East at the Satsuma exit. Within the hour the closure was extended, shutting down the eastbound side of the interstate starting at the Walker South Road exit.
