Caddo deputies are working a train derailment in south Caddo Parish. The train came off the tracks and is blocking both lanes of Highway 1 near the Caddo and Red River Parish line. The highway will be closed approximately 4-5 hours while crews work to clear the train cars. Traffic is being diverted to Highway 175 to I-49.
This is the latest of four train derailments along LA 1 in or near Red River Parish in the past year. Two of them involved trains striking water trucks.
