BUTTE LA ROSE, La. (AP) - A tractor-trailer flipped over on a Louisiana highway, dumping thousands of potatoes, catching fire and killing the driver.

Investigators couldn’t immediately tell if the driver was a man or a woman, according to Master Trooper Brooks David (DAH-veed).

Louisiana State Police report on Facebook that the wreck happened early Monday on Interstate 10 eastbound, near the Butte La Rose exit.

David said in a phone interview that the highway was reopened about 1 p.m., after crews cleared the potatoes.
