Van crashes on I-49

Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Deputies, Louisiana State Police and Natchitoches Regional Medical Center EMS responded to NATCOM 911 Center reports of a two-vehicle crash on Feb. 27 at 12:12 pm on I-49 near milepost #129 south of Natchitoches according to Sheriff Stuart Wright.
Deputies arrived on scene finding one person suffering from non-life threatening injuries.
Deputies say a 2019 Nissan van was traveling southbound on I-49 near milepost #129 when it drifted to the right onto the southbound shoulder striking a parked unoccupied 2004 Ford work truck. This action caused the van to come to a rest in both southbound lanes partially closing one lane for a period of time.
The operator of the van was assessed at the scene by EMS and released without transport pending a follow-up examination with a medical provider.
Both lanes of traffic are now open.
Troopers assigned to LSP Troop-E are investigating the crash.
