A portion of Swan Lake has been closed for several hours after a truck spilled its load of scrap metal across the road.

Bossier City Police have closed Swan Lake Road from Shed Road to Hazel Jones Road as wrecker crews remove a tractor trailer that tipped over causing its load of scrap metal to dump out on the side of the road.

The accident happened at approximately 12:30 pm when the driver of the rig turned northbound on Swan Lake Road from eastbound Shed Road causing the load of scrap metal, including two wrecked vehicles, to shift and tip the rig over onto its side.

The affected portion of Swan Lake Road is expected to be closed for the next 3 to 4 hours to accommodate the efforts of the wrecker crews as they upright the tractor trailer and remove all the spilled scrap metal.

The driver of the tractor trailer was cited for having an unsecured load. He was not injured.
