A heart-stopping crash involving an 18-wheeler happened yesterday in Rayne. And it was caught on a nearby city surveillance camera.

The crash happened on Thursday, March 17, 2022, just before noon. The Rayne Police Department reported that they responded to the single-vehicle accident involving a 2011 KW tractor and trailer.

The tractor-trailer was traveling east on Interstate, when for unknown reasons it left the roadway, drove down an overpass embankment, crossed The Boulevard, and came to a rest on private property.
