The computer system for the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles is down statewide.

Workers discovered the outage as offices opened Wednesday. Office of Motor Vehicles commissioner Karen St. Germain told The Associated Press in a Wednesday midday interview that it is unlikely the problem will be corrected before the usual 4 p.m. closing time at the 79 offices around the state.

St. Germain said the state Office of Technology Services is working on the problem. She said updates would be posted on the office's Facebook page.
