US 167 remains closed at this hour as officials work to clear hazardous materials from the road. It took place around 4:00 near the corner of Johnston and E. Broussard Road. State police say a car pulled out in front of a truck pulling the trailer carrying the materials. When the driver of the truck slammed on his brakes, one of the straps on the trailer broke, and two containers fell off it. Officials say one of the containers is leaking, and HazMat crews are on scene cleaning the spill.
