GROSSE TETE, La. (BRPROUD) – The Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office confirms that a tanker truck has overturned on I 10 East at LA-77. It happened around Exit 140 and hazmat has been called to the scene.

IPSO says the tanker truck ran off the road and the driver attempted to make a correction which forced weight to be shifted and that is when it overturned.

The driver was not hurt and there is a small amount of leaking taking place from the tanker truck.

Delays are not expected this morning, but your commute later this morning could be affected by this traffic incident.

Sometime later this morning, an off-loader will come to the scene and remove the contents of the tanker truck.

At that time, traffic will have to be rerouted and delays are possible for motorists.

Louisiana State Police will be in control of how traffic is rerouted at that time.
