Crash on I-20
Traffic on Interstate 20 was rerouted for about an hour and one man was airlifted following a wreck on Thursday.
Ruston Police Department Public Information Officer Lt. Tim Parker said at about 4 p.m., officers were assisting Ruston Fire Department in putting out a vehicle fire on I-20 near Rough Edge Road.
“The officers saw traffic come to a stop just past them,” Parker said. “As they were wrapping up the car fire, a delivery van traveling westbound ran into the rear of an 18-wheeler that had slowed for traffic due to the vehicle fire.”
