Fortunately for those involved, there were no injuries in a two-vehicle accident early Wednesday.

According to Webster Parish Sheriff Jason Parker, a woman driving a pick-up truck and pulling a trailer exited Interstate 20 eastbound at exit 49 where it intersects with La. Hwy. 531.

“She wasn’t from this area and was unfamiliar with the roads,” Parker said. “She decided to get back on the interstate and pulled in front of another pick-up truck that was northbound. His truck struck hers from the side.”

The roadway was temporarily blocked. The sheriff said the woman, who was moving from New Mexico to Georgia, had a dog that escaped while she was talking with deputies. It is still missing.

“All we know about the dog is that it is white and tan, small in height but large in weight,” said the sheriff.

If you have any information on the dog’s whereabouts, please call the sheriff’s office at 377-1515.

No citations were issued.
