Ok maybe the reason they had to this wasn't cool but the video is cool.
I grew up in Baton Rouge, LA and now live 30miles east. This didn't affect me directly but it did affect all of my fb friends and family on fb as I read how it took 2-4 hrs for them to get to work.
A car flipped over on the interstate that goes from New Orleans into Baton Rouge in Baton Rouge. A tanker truck carrying a highly flammable gas (isobutane) stopped for the accident and another 18wheeler slammed into the back of him causing a leak and damaging the valves used to unload the chemical. Making it nearly impossible to safely unload onto another truck. It cause both lanes of I-10 to shut down from the baton rouge line into where I-12 meets i-10 in baton rouge. It was a mess.
