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. 

Video showed the truck on its side and what appeared to be steel beams spilled onto the roadway. 

WBRZ has not received word of any major injuries. 

As of around 10 p.m., it's unclear how long the interstate would remain closed.
