2 injured when big rig flipps onto Mustang

KENNER, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police say a driver and 12-year-old passenger were injured when a tractor-trailer overturned onto their Ford Mustang.

The wreck closed northbound lanes of Interstate 310 from about 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

State Trooper Joe Piglia tells WWL-TV he was amazed that the people in the car were still alive.

He says the vehicles collided while both vehicles were trying to leave Interstate 10 for I-310 in Kenner. The car was pinned against the exit divider.

WDSU-TV reports that the automobile's driver was critically injured and the passenger was moderately injured. Both were taken to the Interim LSU Hospital.

The trucker suffered minor injuries and did not go to a hospital.

WVUE-TV reports that the truck was hauling general freight.
