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.
