BATON ROUGE - Workers removed a dangerous load from a disabled tanker truck last night in a most spectacular fashion.
I-10 reopened this morning in both directions after being closed for
more than 24 hours following a crash involving the tanker truck.
Late Wednesday night, a state hazardous material response team performed
a "vent and burn" procedure on a tanker truck which had been disabled
since early that morning.
The tanker had been leaking a fuel similar to liquified propane, and
officials had determined it was too dangerous to move the rig or offload
