WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE) - A car in a ditch slowed traffic along Interstate 20 in West Monroe for around an hour and a half Monday. It started around noon.

A viewer photo shows the vehicle in the deep ditch between the eastbound lanes of I-20 and the service road in front of Walk-Ons.

The incident has slowed traffic for a time along I-20 as cars go around emergency vehicles, but traffic cameras showed the slowdown to be fairly isolated to the area.

Traffic has since returned to normal.
