State Police have arrested a man who they say abandoned a stolen vehicle on the I-10 Bonnet Carre Spillway leading to a fiery crash and temporary closure of the roadway Thursday morning.
Troopers say 27-year-old Antoine Reid was traveling on the I-10 Bonnet Carre Spillway Bridge in a stolen car when he abandoned the vehicle in the travel lanes and began walking down I-10.
After abandoning the car, state police say another motorist rear-ended the vehicle and suffered minor injuries. The crash then caused a fire which resulted in the closure of the roadway.

He was booked into the St. Charles Parish Correctional Center on the following charges:
- Possession of Stolen Property
- Obstruction of a Roadway
- No Driver’s License
- Careless Operation
Reid was also arrested on several outstanding warrants.
