SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Caddo Parish sheriff’s deputies are investigating the crash of a stolen 18-wheeler.

Sgt. Mike Vaitkus said in a news release the tractor-trailer was taken from a truck stop in Texarkana, Arkansas, around 4:30 a.m. Friday.

Vaitkus says patrol deputies found the vehicle overturned on the side of Interstate 49 in the northern part of the parish around 5:30 a.m.

He says the 18-wheeler carrying two AT&T; work trucks struck the center rail as it passed over Louisiana Highway 2. He says the vehicle ran off the highway, rolled down an embankment and overturned.
