Big rig hangs off I-10 after crash

HOUSTON – An accident involving a big rig truck slowed traffic on I-10 East outbound Wednesday morning.

According to Houston TranStar, the crash happened shortly after 9 a.m. near Gregg Street just east of downtown.

Two mainlanes and the shoulder were blocked, and Gregg Street was closed off at the underpass.

Views from Air 11 showed the truck teetering on top of an outside concrete barrier, which was partially damaged. The truck was not hauling a trailer at the time of the incident.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash, and there were no immediate reports of injuries.

A wrecker safely removed the truck from the barrier, and the freeway reopened around 10:30 a.m.
