Louisiana State Police are on the scene of a two-vehicle crash on US 167 in Vermilion Parish Wednesday night. 

Troopers say the crash occurred within the last hour near LA-699. Injuries have been reported in the crash but it is unclear as to the extent of those injuries. Descriptions of those vehicles were not available.

A witness tells KATC that one person was taken by ambulance to the hospital, others were treated at the scene. 

State Police report that there is a lane closure as crews remain on scene to clear the vehicles. US-167 remains open at this time. 

Another crash on US-167 occurred earlier Wednesday between LA-697 and LA-696. State Police, in that crash, reported serious injuries after a car veered from the roadway and crashed into a telephone pole. Read more here
