BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- A trailer came loose from a pickup truck and rolled across the median of Interstate 10 in southern Louisiana, striking another truck in an accident that left one person dead.

State police said the accident happened around 3:15 p.m. Friday between the Highland Road exit and Louisiana 73 at Prairieville. Traffic was tied up in both directions until authorities reopened I-10 just before 7 p.m.

The trailer came loose from a westbound truck and crossed into the eastbound lane. The name of the victim had not been released as of Friday evening.
