Opelousas Police Department say a dislodged tire caused a vehicle to flip. Late Saturday night, a truck was traveling north on I-49, when for unknown reasons the front passenger tire dislodged from the vehicle causing the driver to lose control and overturn in the median.
Officers say as a result of the tire in the road, a second vehicle traveling north struck the tire causing damage that vehicle.
The driver of the truck was cited for No Drivers License, and had minor to no injures. The passenger of the truck was transported the nearest hospital where they were treated and released.
