METAIRIE, La. -- The Causeway Bridge has been reopened northbound following this morning's accident.
St. Tammany Fire District #4, which responded to the scene, said the closure was caused by a two-vehicle crash at the drawbridge. They say that the drawbridge was in the up position, with traffic stopped, when a white truck failed to stop and ran into the stopped traffic at the foot of the drawbridge.
A spokesman says they took one patient to a hospital, but so far the victim's injuries are unknown.
