Traffic mayhem has ensued in Shreveport Monday following a school bus accident.

It happened around 11 p.m. near the intersection of North Spring Street and Lake Avenue.

A Rapides Parish school bus was trying to change lanes when it sideswiped a semi, causing it to knock down an electrical pole, according to Shreveport Police Department.

Officials say 32 kids and 6 teachers were on the bus, but none were injured. The semi driver was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Traffic at the intersection is jammed from vehicles exiting I-20, and utility crews from SWEPCO estimate traffic will be interrupted until at least 4:30 p.m.
