If you're planning to head to Baton Rouge tonight or tomorrow you may want to reroute.
There have been major traffic delays all across the capital region.

Interstates 10 and 12 along with dozens of side streets are still gridlocked tonight after a wreck early this morning.

Sources say an 18 wheeler stopped on the interstate because of an overturned car.

That rig had nine thousand gallons of Isobutane inside which is a chemical like propane.

Another rig rearended the one carrying the chemical which is what crews are still working to clean up.
