OUACHITA PARISH -- A rollover accident on Interstate 20 is backing up traffic this afternoon.

It happened after 5:30 p.m. on I-20 westbound near exit 107 at the Cheniere exit.

State Police say a 2002 Ford Explorer blew a right rear tire out and rolled off the interstate.

Officials on the scene say one occupant has minor injuries. The other two occupants including the driver are not injured.

State Police say they observed the tire to be rotting and in very poor condition, which most likely lead to the blow-out.

Police say the SUV was the only vehicle involved.
