Heavy fog, loose gravel cause 18-wheeler to get stuck in mud

Natchitoches Parish Fire District 4, the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office, Provencal Police, and towing companies were on the scene of an 18 wheeler incident on March 25  around 10:20 am at the intersection of LA 117 and LA120.
During heavy fog early this morning, the driver encountered loose gravel in the S turn at the intersection and exited the roadway, sinking axle-deep into the mud.
Measures to mitigate a leak in a diesel tank were started, using a water-based putty to seal around the leak. A small amount, approximately 5 gallons had spilled before the leak was stopped.
