LIVINGSTON - Several vehicles collided near the Livingston exit on I-12 west bound, causing a major accident and a shutdown of I-12 west bound.
A Greyhound bus was forced into the guardrails, taking several cars with it in the confusion.
Afterward, an accident occurred as traffic slammed to a halt and two cars ran into the stopped vehicles. Finally, another car swerved into the median, hitting the cars who had caused the secondary accident and some of the passengers.
Several people were transferred to local hospitals after Town of Livingston Police Department worked the scene.
Traffic was backed up nearly to Holden, while delays were caused on I-12 east bound as those in the outside lane moved slow through the area. As of 8:05 p.m. Saturday the lanes had been re-opened, but delays remained heading west bound.
Emergency responders were on the scene and The News has reached out to the Livingston Parish Sheriff's office, State Police, and Livingston Police for more information.
