18-wheeler clips top of Clearview overpass, closing roadway


METAIRIE, La. - An accident at Clearview Parkway and the Earhart Expressway snarled traffic Friday afternoon.

Several lanes of the expressway were closed after an 18-wheeler carrying an oversized load hit the Clearview overpass. State Police troopers said the truck may have been hauling a forklift when it hit the top portion of the structure.

Works crews had to offload the machinery before the lanes could be reopened.

There were no injuries.
