Accident dumps load of hay on I-10 median

A pickup truck pulling a trailerload of hay in Interstate 10 had a blowout Monday afternoon and lost control, causing the trailer full of hay to get caught in the cables in the median and spill its load, according to LSP Trooper Chad Chrisentery. The accident, which occurred on I-10 eastbound just east of Highland Road, snarled traffic for a while, until the accident scene was cleared.
