The traffic lights at the intersection of Bert Kouns Industrial Loop and Youree Drive in Shreveport near IHOP and Walmart were knocked down by an 18-wheeler into the middle of the busy intersection Tuesday afternoon around 3 p.m.

The lights fell near IHOP and Walmart, cutting off one end of the street from the other.

We received the below pictures from a 710 KEEL listener, Leigh Anne Jones,  who also told us that at least one car appeared to have metal on top of it. No injuries have been reported so far.

Motorists are being asked to avoid the intersection of Bert Kouns and Youree Drive for the next several hours while city work crews scramble to restore a traffic signal downed by an 18-wheeler.

The repair work required is extensive and the intersection has been closed to traffic in all directions. There is no immediate estimate for how long the repairs will take but commuters should plan to use alternate routes such as East Kings Highway or Millicent Way until further notice.

We will update this story as more information comes available.
