East Loop Big Rig Crashes Into Overhead Sign

A frightening moment captured by Carlos Escobedo on the East Loop this afternoon in Houston.  A big rig traveling with it’s bucket in the raised position slams into the freeway signage, tumbling the structure to the roadway in a tangled mess. The big rig fell and skidded on it’s side, dragging pieces, before coming to a stop.  Metal can be seen flying over Mr. Escobedo’s truck as the accident occurs.

The East Loop northbound lanes are shutdown at Market Street. Cleanup will take authorities several hours to complete. No fatalities are being reported with this incident.
