The eastbound lane of East Flournoy Lucas is now open to traffic. The roadway had been closed because of an 18-wheeler roll over.

Shreveport Police tell NBC 6 News that the semi driver was on 3132 when he missed the I-49 south exit.

When the Loop ended, the driver tried turning right.

But because of his speed and the sharpness of the curve, the truck turned on its side.

The driver, who's 18-wheeler was carrying food, is okay.

He was headed from Dallas.

The accident happened around 1:00 a.m.

Shreveport Police say this isn't the first time an accident like this has happened at this location.
