Winter weather wreaks havoc on the Arklatex
Winter precipitation caused traffic havoc in Northwest Louisiana and East Texas tonight. Bossier City police closed all bridges into the city and icy bridge conditions in Caddo Parish were a factor in a fatal traffic accident.
Freezing drizzle iced every bridge and most overpasses in Shreveport and Bossier City and forecasters did not expect conditions to improve until just before daybreak Monday.
Wrecks occurred all over the city -- in so many numbers that some people abandoned their cars because there were no officers available to work the wrecks. In Bossier City, emergency personnel began running out of ambulances because so many people were transported for medical treatment.
Police urged people to stay at home.
to remain in effect until 6 a.m. Monday due to freezing drizzle.
