SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – I-220 is back open in Shreveport after a dump truck driver hit the center divider and flipped over on the Cross Lake bridge Friday afternoon.

Shreveport police say no one was injured as the driver of the dump truck was able to get out before the fire began.

The interstate was back as of 5 p.m.
