Drivers warned to be aware of patches of ice on roads Friday morning
WEST BATON ROUGE - A Friday (Feb. 19) morning multi-vehicle crash with injuries on the Old Mississippi River Bridge has been cleared and the bridge has been reopened following a temporary closure of US 190 East at LA 1.
The reopening occurred around 8 a.m.
Officials say one person sustained minor injuries during the wreck and was treated at the crash site.
According to Louisiana State Police, while ice on the road did not directly cause the crash, authorities suspect icy conditions may have played a role in the incident.
