CADDO PARISH, La. (KSLA) - Drivers were told to avoid Highway 2 in Hosston Wednesday morning while first responders investigated a crash that involved an SUV and an 18-wheeler.

Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says they got the call around 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 13. Deputies responded and found that the driver of the SUV had partially submerged their vehicle in a bayou near the Highway 2 bridge. First responders were able to pull the driver out of the SUV; she was taken to a local hospital.

Officials say the 18-wheeler was somewhat damaged, but the driver is okay.

Both lanes of Highway 2 were closed; drivers were diverted to Gilliam Scotts Slough Road. The highway reopened around 1 p.m.
