NEW ORLEANS - A collapsed 18-wheel truck blocked two lanes of I-10 traffic headed into New Orleans from Metairie, backing up traffic for several hours during the middle of the day Friday.

The truck collapsed in its middle section, with that part scraping the ground between the front and back tires.

The disabled truck was blocking the two left-hand lanes on I-10 just past the Metairie Road exit, pushing traffic back to Bonnabel from about 10:15 a.m. until near 3 p.m.
